My name is Eric Smith and I am a new (or shall I say used) Mercedes owner. My wife fell in love with a 1990 420SEL on her birthday. I didn't have a gift, so what is a guy to do. I have already lived thru the dreaded timing belt issue. I wish I had found this site sooner. I have already completed a block up rebuild. My current question is about the radio. I am blowing fuze #2( 1 amp) every time I turn on the radio. I put a 10amp meter on the the radio and it pegs the scale. I assume a dead short in the radio. Any suggestions?
