Electrical system shutdown
After driving about 3 miles from home with A/C in full blast, 1)A/C shuts off 2) ABS light comes on 3) Other dash lights on right side come on 4)Engine stops.
When I pull over and turn the ignition off then back on nothing happens-no electicity. If I jump the battery it starts right up and I can go another 3 miles or if I let the car sit for 30 minutes it starts right up and goes another 3 miles.
I have checked the overload relay (OVP) for corrosion, it is clean (but may still be defective). My car is a 1989 300SEL.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
