Question about 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300
When I turn the ignition switch on the car the power goes out. when i try to start it again there is no power at all. It sits for a while and the power comes back on but it only repeats the cycle. HELP??!!!!???
Stuck in a cycle....
Make sure that your battery is good first. I have seen them go bad in a way that as soon as you start pulling power they short out and die.
If your sure that the battery is good, make sure that you battery cable ends and battery are clean. Also, there is a terminal block that is about 3/4"X2" located on the right fender apron that distributes the power. Check these connections to make sure they are good. Check the negative battery cable at the fender apron where it it bolts up. Check the ground strap that bolts up to the left side of the transmission bell housing to the body.
If all of these things are correct, you probably have a bad ignition switch.
