Hi all -
It's been a while since I have posted here, and unfortunately my post
is not to answer the secrets of the mercedes universe. My post is a
I am still fighting the good fight with my girlfriend's (now
fiancee's) 1986 560SL. It now has a new idle air control valve,
injection head, spark plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor. It runs much
better with no black smoke issueing from the tail pipe, but it still
has one problem that is flummoxing me.
The car has an unstable idle and an Antilock brake light that comes
and goes. The unstable idle is unstable around 650 RPM's. I searched
the site and found a post that a bad Overload relay fuse could cause
this. The post was for a 1989 SL and stated that the overload relay
could be found behind the passenger kick panel above the fuse box. I
looked. There were two relays, but none that answered to the
description of an overload relay.
Anybody know where the overload relay is in an early 1986 560SL? Any
answer to this or my under lieing problem would be appreciated.
