There are some possibilities that you will have to check out. As you mentioned that fuse burns out.So what you try first is replace the fuse with bit high ampere fuse .Then check out.Is it still burning or working with high ampere fuse.But if the high ampere fuse is also burning then the blower fan motor and fan plug connections needs to be checked.Any of this is faulty and getting over heated and this is shorting the fuse track to burn out.The voltage at blower motor and fan plug will be exact 12 in meter. If its low or no voltage that part has to be replaced.but first you try out with high ampere fuse. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Yes,could be your blower resistor is bad,it's right next to the blower motor,it controls the blower motor speed,easy to replace.

My 92 mercedes 500 sel has the ars light come on and then it loses power, what can i do to fix it?

Check ASR system. Wheel sensors would be a good start because thats what the system checks for speed difference at the wheels. It reduces power to keep you straight on the road.

The blower fuse is at the driver side near the fender close to the top shock area. If the fuse is good then there is either the problem with the blower or the blower regulator. The regulator is the one to make the blower run at different speed like low, high and auto mode. They are all in the same place. The regulator is below the blower. They are below the windshield and on the side of the engine, behind the firewall. They are not inside the dashboard. It takes quite a bit of time to take these out. Have fun to work on it.

1984 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL

In the driver's side trunk along the wheel well and behind the wheel well cover you will find the sunroof motor. There is a plastic knob that can be turned to close/open the roof manually. The socket tool is part of the original toolkit that came with the car, but otherwise, you can locate one that will fit. Don't use pliers as the plastic easily breaks. Meanwhile, have you looked at the fuse or toggled the switch hard to work? If the motor works, but doesn't move there is an adjutment on the motor's clutch that can be tightened. Hope this helps.

No adjustment per say on the MB. Once the bands go it time to rplace the clutch discs so they dont ruin the friction discs. Try or for parts kits.

A/c fans wont blow

If the fuse is blown for the blower then there is a short, that is not an answer, go to the blower and check to see that the blower motor connector has 12 volts to it when the blower is set to high speed on control, if it does then u need a new blower motor, if it doesn't then the control switch is defective or the blower motor speed control resistor is defective.

Heater not working

either blower motor resistor or blower selector switch.could be selector switch because if resistor was gone you should still have either hi or low fan speeds.
