Good day, and welcome to the forum.

97 S320 is not known to have engine wiring problems, but... your steering colum is tied to the outside mirror fuse, and I can tell you maybe upto 99, but my 98 had mirror wiring problems; The fuse would blow on adjusting the mirrors, so you may have this. This may be a reason for the colum is not working for you too...

No SLS on these 320s just plain shocks. To service the low-side of the AC is a tank of hydraulic fluid under the right drivers side black plastic cover. if you had SLS.

As newbie, have you changed your rear heater tee as you blow that tee on the road, and you have under a minute to stop that engine. Change the tee with a actual Mercedes brand tee, or Rein Tee(Rein makes the MB tee) - No used or ebay/craiglist/offerup/etc...

The tee's are good for safely upto 70k-80k miles after that you are in the danger zone for failure... Here is the tee:

Read all about it...

Change this one too:

Then read my posts here... I'm looking for that California to New York reliability every day, and that what it takes....

All the best,
