Benz's are complex :)

I just bought a 91 420 SEL after rebuilding an 85 GTI (no air,no nothing) - & all I can say is wow! Talk about complex machinery ! The 91 Benz is pristine, but has an issue I think I have a handle on (thanks to this forum) centers around high idle (2000 rpms) and ABS light on. It has to be either the idle air control relay and/or the overload protection relay. I'd say the latter since the previous owner says both conditions occur simultaneously. I was intermittent, now permanent, so i think the relay has to be the culprit.

Thanks for being here btw
