Ah, I've had a little saga already on this message board. When the cold desists
a bit and I can drive out again, I will most likely get the battery replaced.
But in the meantime, another curiosity... I managed to charge the battery of my
1977 300D -- I had to twiddle the cables around a little before it oddly started
showing the charge needle on the display correctly at 0, I don't know why it was
so picky about me clipping the black - cable to a place on the chassis...
although the charge didn't go up 100% and stopped at 75% for some reason.
Anyway, I'll deal with that later. What I'm wondering now, if it's the roots of
a bigger problem:
When I took the car out for a little spin, I noticed the battery charge
indicator light, the little battery + - picture that's supposed to be
illuminated in red... it didn't come on at all when the key was in Position 2 as
it states in the manual. I never saw it come on... then again, I can't recall if
it came on before , my memory's sort of hazy and this car is aging!
Is this a sign of trouble? For example, if I drive the car around without that
light ever coming on in the first place, does that mean it will likely go dead
all of a sudden in the middle of the road?
Thank you so much. I tried to Google about this but there was no pertinent
