Found a relay/solenoid up under the pedal assembly of my 1976 300d
with automatic transmission. Not sure what it is or does. It has a
somewhat "S" shaped stamped sheet metal switch attached to it. Was
just hanging above the brake pedal and steering column by a wiring
harness. Would appreciate to identify where it goes and what it
does. Can send foto if needed. Thanks!
Good idea, but no numbers on this, the only marking is part of the
bakelite casing and it is an 'M' and a 'K' joined together side by
side. Very small paper tag is mostly unreadable (looks like date,
maybe), but does start with ' 2 - ' . It has 6 contact pins and one
bakelit alignment pin (removed it from wiring harness).
All assists would be appreciated. Thanks!
This looks like after-market part. Almost all MB parts that are big
enough would have the parts number, like 123-450-xxxx. And MB does not
allow any relay hanging there.
Can this be related to alarm, remote starter, or radio/amplifier?
Thanks for the try, I do appreciate your time spent on this. Actually
looks like a MB part and has MB wire harness still connected to it.
It for shur is a switch of some kind. Stamped sheet metal part on top
does move the internals when pressed upon. Have tried actuating it
when car is parked and running, but does not seem to control
anything. Cannot actuate it when driving for very obvious reasons of
safety. Since I am at least 4th owner (or more), most likely it has
been moved from where it should be. These did not have alarms or
remote starters and doubt very much if it is connected in any way to
radio (which is still original Becker that works). There are 2 hollow
rivets that hold the device together and act like they could be pushed
out of the bakelite casing very easily as only one end of the rivets
are peened over. The unknown switch is about as big as a third of a
pack of cigarettes (cutting across the pack). Oh well, maybe one
day . . .
