1998 E 320 Owner ( 81000 Miles)

I purchased my E 320 from my Fiancee when she was buying a new 2006 E 350 because the AC Compressor was defective and he Dealer cost to repair was $ 3,900.00. I replaced the Compressor with a used one and with the help of an Independent who charged the system resulting in a cost of about $ 700.00.
I subsequently had electrical problems. The seat and other adjustments kept cutting out separately for both Driver and Passenger sides independently. I did not accept the Dealers recomendation to replace Door Control Modules at $ 450.00 each, and eventually discovered that by removing and replacing Fuse 16 in the Engine Compartment the Drivers side was reset ( Fuse 1 under the back seat reset the Passenger Side). The fuses were not blown!
After months of resetting, I read in a DIY Shop Forum "Computer out of Sync"
and was able to solve all my electrical problems by following the instructions:-
I have had it with Dealer prices, gouging and incompetence so plan to do as much as possible myself.
