  1. Getting old and can't see in dark wet road conditions

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Still working on this set of problems. One, got 100 watt replacements for the fog light bulbs (yellow CREE), got more expensive polarized and tinted clip-ons, have a new eye exam coming up and today got THESE...

    But my night vision on DRY roads is still fine. And, yes, I drive as slowly as I can without infuriating the persons behind me and that is usually the speed limit.
  3. Getting old and can't see in dark wet road conditions

    On wet roads with bright headlights coming AT me, the painted lines on the road just vanish. On windey Vermont and New Hampshire back roads, even a brief uncertainty scares the heck out of me. Looking to the fog line on the right side is no help if that disappears, too, and lots of back roads...

    This came to me with a brand new windscreen, clean and scratch free, Brand new wipers and a carefully applied coat of RainX

    I have very expensive progressive lenses already though.

    Yeah but all the Contra Dances are at night and some of the English Country Dances as well. Those a re a LOT more fun than the opera.
  7. Yellow Fogs (Euro)

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    I'm having really serious issues (as in terrifying) with driving at night on wet roads and facing very bright (most are these days) headlights. The painted lines just vanish. I'm thinking upping the power on my fog lights with CREE LEDs or augmenting the lights with under bumper spots aimed at...
  8. Car Alarm blaring!!!

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Well, I found a 2.5 inch X 5 inch module inboard with a smaller and larger plug. I disconnected the smaller one and now I have a clicking sound like a turn signal relay - sort of. As long as the horn isn't blaring, I'll deal with that later.

    1991 350SD W126 - My fog lights next to the headlights are not doing it for me on wet nights, even on newly paved road with newly painted lines. Oncoming headlights just blind me. What do others put in to overcome this problem. I know I'm not alone. I have tried these night driving yellow tint...
  10. Car Alarm blaring!!!

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    I'll look at that module and disconnect. I have errands scheduled for today. I DID have water leaking in the upper corners of the new windshield the DPO put in. My mechanic diagnosed that (I thought my sunroof was the culprit) and fixed that a couple of weeks ago and the rugs are still damp. I...
  11. Car Alarm blaring!!!

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Just now, SOMETHING made my 350SD think that I am a thief. I get it to shut up but only temporarily. I have tried shutting down, going outside, locking the doors and unlocking them again. It shuts up but then starts again. I have tried locking the doors from the drivers door lock and then...
