R129 Door Switch Blows Fuse 13?
Awhile back I posted how the seats, mirrors, etc will not adjust unless either door is open on my 98 SL500.
I found that Fuse #13 is blown everytime the door is closed.
I did a test - I left the door open, put a new fuse in, adjusted the seat, while it was moving, pushed the door "switch" (black plastic rod on the door), and it immediately stopped moving and the fuse was blown. Until I let go... then it moved again.
Could it just be a bad door switch? Seems extreme to blow a 20A fuse. I have already changed the convenience relay.
