Hey all,
New member on here in Austin, TX, but I've been referring to this forum for a few months now. Now on my 2nd Mercedes. Its a 1985 300SD with 144,717 on the odometer, which I know is broken. So I don't know true mileage. I purchased the car in Feb 2012 from an old woman who was moving into a home. The car hadn't been driven in a long while so I noticed sludge building in the fuel filter as my wife and I began driving it more. Removed the fuel tank and cleaned it. Purged all the fuel lines and replaced the filters. Its running well now but there are some electrical gremlins. The dome light doesn't work and there must be a short on Fuse 15, as this would blow within seconds of being replaced. Now, the biggest issue is that my ABS light is on and the tach doesn't work and the A/C, which used to blow cold, now is blowing warm. Not fun in the Texas heat. I believe this issue is related, because I have noticed this before, but not during the heat. Any help would be very much appreciated!
