I have a W124 (200E) that is an excellent workhorse except for one
peculiarity. The air-conditioning system will work beautifully so
long as I use the car everyday.
If I should miss starting the engine and therefore miss switching on
the air compressor or I leave the car unattended in the driveway for a
day or two, then it becomes next to impossible to get the air
compressor to "cut in" for the air-conditioning system to function.
I would then have to drive the car for a couple of days (under a hot
sun most of the time) before ….. presto ….. the air compressor
suddenly "cuts in" and the air-conditioning system is back running
Could anyone help, please?
