HELP - Lost air and gages

Have a 2000, 230 SLK and driving home tonight with air on high (100 degrees in texas) I suddenly lost the air and all my dash gages (tach/speed/gas/rpm) simply dropped to 0. The car seems to be running ok but I'm not sure where to look first to solve this problem. I'm a recent benz owner and not a very good mechanic. Hope this is something simple to fix.

Welcome aboard.

Sorry you're having issues.

You posted in the general forum, which is for general topics of interest regarding MB cars.

You're more likely to find useful help if you post in the forum that is specific to your chassis, the R170. Just scroll down the main forum page and you'll see the roadster section. There may already be answers in the stickies or you can search a bit instead of posting and waiting for someone to answer.

Good luck, I know that has to be frustrating.
