My '83 380SEL died on me today. If I pull and wiggle (new) fuel
pump relay in and out with ignition on, I can hear the buzzing form throttle
body area perhaps indicating fuel pump operation, but only for a second. I
was thinking this could indicate problem with overload relay. I recently had
same sudden die and had the fuel pump, fuel pump relay and overload relay
fixed three weeks ago. The funny thing was there was no new overload relay
part cost on bill so I think they may have just re-soldered cracked joints.
I am looking for the overload relay. I called a Mercedes dealer parts
department and asked. He said it was on fire wall but I am unable to find.
Where should I look for this part?
