1993 400e Black on Tan

Actually found the forum when looking up the ASR light on my dash and began reading from there. Everyone seems very helpful and friendly. I just picked up my 400e this past week. First Benz I've ever owned so I have much to learn. The car is in great shape considering it sat over six months. It needs a new throttle linkage, the ASR light is on but no limp home, sputters when you give it a lot of throttle but has been getting much better with the gas treatment I used, and the imstrumentation cluster doesn't light up. I hope to get some DIY help and maybe point mr toward some good resources as I have no manuals.

I had the ASR light go on in my 1997 E420 after I had not driven it for some time. I took it to the dealer who told me that they were getting low voltage codes to all the systems which could cause it.

I replaced the battery and the problem went away.

With best regards
