Please Help Stranded in a W115 220D
hello, i have a 1972 w115 220d, it runs great in general, i started it this morning in -15 deg f and again a few hours later with absolutely no problem. now at lunch i go to pull the knob to glow the plugs and i have absolutely no power. its like the battery was completely dead. i verified the battery is fine, i even tried jumping it and no power. after looking over the wiring for a minute i tried starting it again, i got the red generator light to turn on but as soon as i pulled out the knob everything died again. i have to imagine there is a ground problem or a short somewhere but its way too cold out to be messing with it especially when im not incredibly familiar with the wiring on this thing.
any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated.
