Do you just use DRL's? You may need to twist the light control stalk. More detail is the first post here:

Some of these new owner tips may be of help too.

Um... have you checked the fuses?
As Vic suggests, the (at least) cigar lighter's lamp is tied into the Daytime Running Lights relay.
Here's that snippet of the 2006 service manual:

54184

You can download the complete 2003 and 2006 service manuals (schematics are section 8w) from: http://aie-services-2.net/Sprinter/

Ahh... and one other place to check is where the door wires enter the frame of the Sprinter.
There was a thread showing extreme wire damage caused by the door-travel-limit sliding metal having chewed into those wires.

Yes, so?

The window and the mirror lights' power comes from two different sources.
(understandable, since you may not have both options)
Here are extracts from the two area schematics. (from the 2006 service manual)
Note that it cites Fuse 7 for one, and Fuse 8 for the other.

Power Mirror circuit (with circled LED lamps)
