That sounds like you have had a switch plug explode in your hands? We could cut one from a wreck for you?

Thanks for the reply!

No problem with my switch. I am looking for the colour code as I am about to install a remote start alarm on the car.

Since this post I was able to find a little information on other MB's, so I may be able to muddle my way through. If someone has the exact info that would be great!

For those who may be interested in this one day, I have a partial colour code for 2002 A160 Classic Auto (W168) after metering the plugs. My car has three plugs at the switch assembly (I had no need to know which was left/right on headlights):

Black Plug (1 PIN)
1) BLK/YEL (+) Battery 12V

Blue Plug (10 PIN)
1) Empty
2) YEL (+) Front Headlight
3) Empty
4) 2/GRY/YEL (+) Front Fog
5) Empty
6) YEL/BLK (+) Front Headlight
7) WHT/BLK (+) Headlight High-Beam (With Ignition on)
8) GRY/RED (+) Front Right Park/Running
9) GRY/BLK (+) Front Left Park/Running
10) WHT (+) Headlight High-Beam (With Ignition on)

Burgundy Plug (10 PIN)
1) BLK/ORG (+) Ignition
2) BRN (-) Ground
3) GRN/WHT (+) 12V (Until ignition is on)
4) GRY/GRN (+) Rear Fog
5) WHT (+) Headlight High-Beam (With ignition & headlights on)
6) WHT/BLK (+) Headlight High-Beam (With ignition & headlights on)
7) 2/GRY/PUR (+) Dash and Lights-On Warning Buzzer
8) GRY/BLK (+) Rear Left Park/Running
9) WHT/YEL (+) Headlight
10) GRY/RED (+) Rear Right Park/Run

Please share any corrections!
