I have a Black/Black 1992 400E Automatic with 240k It ran great until it quit one day about 10 months ago. I was going all through the engine trying to find the problem and i never considered the wiring being bad until this week.

I am willing to sell parts or the whole car.

Most everything is in decent condition:

The engine ran great until the wires went so if you put a new harness on it you have a good engine. Its dirty but it barely used any oil and ran smooth and quiet. It had good compression last I checked. The exhaust is solid and has no leaks or rust.

All the belt driven things work except maybe the AC Compressor. I dont have cold air and Im not sure why. It could be anything.

The transmission is a 4 speed auto and has never given me any problems. The drivetrain is all good.

The body is dinged up but doesnt have any rust anywhere. All the glass except the windshield is good and not cracked. The light housings are in decent condition.

The interior is in fair condition. The dash has no cracks, but the wood inserts are very cracked. Carpet is clean. Im keeping the seats and power seat controls to make a living room set unless you buy the whole car. The sunroof works and doesnt leak.

The suspension and steering is good except I dont know if I have the rear stabilization system or if it works. How do I tell? Also there is a leak somewhere toward the top of the power steering system.

The ABS does not work at all, but the brakes themselves work great.

5 straight wheels with minimal curb rash 15x7 8 hole silver paint. Im keeping the tires.

Ill take pictures just tell me what you want pics of. I would like to wait a couple weeks before I sell any parts to see if I can sell it whole but you can go ahead and ask about anything. If youre interested PM, Reply, or Email me at squirrels999 (at) hotmail (dot) com

I also have a 99.9% new set of caps and rotors for an M119 check here:
