The $300 hundred dollar diesel.....

Hey everyone, New Mercedes owner here. I live in Seattle and build Hot Rods for a living. I recently bought a new DD....BigBird my yellow $300 dollar 1980 240D with a 4 speed stick, A/C, and manual windows. (rare combo I'm told) It has 270,000 on it and is in okay shape and seems to run pretty good. I've had it since August and I've been running it on mixed WVO and Diesel. No problems there yet, Anyways, today I had my first problem My gas gauge, temp gauge, turn signals, and parking brake light are working intermittent. it's either all of them or nothing. I've done some searching and reading here and in the morning I am going to check the fuses....any other things I should look for? thanks! Matt

My parents had an '82 240D with the same setup; manual windows, A/C, and a 4 speed manual. It was a great car!
