Question about 1987 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 190 Class
I am trying to get a this 190 D up and gpoing again. For the most part it runs well. However it has some electrical issues. The starter sometimes work and sometimes doesn't, the directionals don't work at all and one of the rear (electric windows ) doesn't work. My mechanic "solved" the starter problem by installing a bypass button in the car.
The real crucial problem are the blinkers. As I understand it, there is a switch which controls them and things like the rear window defroster and can be bought for about $125. However, the rear defroster works so this leads me to believe it is not this switch. Is there another switch that might do the trick? anything else you can think of?
The K relay or headlight relay goes bad in these and control all the lights and the bulb out indicator. It should be in the fuse box or under the screwed down cover connected to the fuse box.
The starter not working is the neutral safety switch on the transmission, when it goes bad cannot be started. It is a sefty feature to allow car not to be started in anything but park or neutral.
The electric windows maybe old dirty switches, remove the center console wood and move the good switch around and see if they work.
