260E flickering ABS Light
I recently bought myself a 260E ridiculously cheap because it failed MOT two years ago and the owner never got around to fix it (lazy and zero knowledge).
Well I found this forum and I did a search and found out about the OVP-relay thing.
I looked it up and saw that my car has the original one with only one fuse so I called Mercedes and asked what a new one costs.
Around 110Euro was the price so I went about and bought revised one (2 fuses) from a wrecked car.
Installed it and the problem seemed to go away.
But on the same day I was going to yearly MOT the ABS light came on.
Turned off the engine and started it again and the light was off.
So I took a chance and went to MOT and luckily the light never came on.
But still, the problem is still there only not that often as before I changed the OVP.
I realize the used one I have could be faulty. But maybe there is something else?
I read that the alternator could cause the same problem.
If the voltage drops below 12,5Volts the light would come on.
But the alternator charges nearly 14Volts all the time and I measured the voltage at the same time as the light came on and it was nearly 14V then too.
But on the other hand I didn't measure the ABS-circuit. I just measured the voltage in the ciggarette lighter while I was driving.
So any ideas?
One other thing I have problem with is the Eberspächer. But I'll go into that in detail another day.
Cheers from Sweden
