Breakdown after a one year stop
Good evening (and first of all sorry for my English...That's not my mother tongue!)
I've just bought a 230ce Sportline W124, 1991.
The guy who sold it to me is a very good friend (I fully trust him). He told me that the car was working perfectly well before he stopped it...one year ago! (outside).
We tried to restart it by connecting the battery to another car. It didn't work. So we changed the battery of the Mercedes and the car started... BUT : no idle, the car seems to work on 3 cylinders when it is at a low regime (it actually stalls). And the rev counter doesn't work. On the forums, I found similar breakdowns, and usually, it was due to the "over load" relay. So I bought a new one, but the problem remains the same. Could anyone help me?
PS : I checked the fuses in the fuse box, they are all OK.
PS : Since I am not a mechanic, please tell me the exact position of the parts you will mention.
THANK YOU !
