I am having trouble starting my 1985 Mercedes 190e. 2.3. I think it is a fuse or burnt relay


Asked by Jan 26, 2015 at 02:38 PM about the 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190-Class 190E 2.3 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Need some specifics about what the issue actually is - but I can tell you a common issue is related to the radiator fan fuse located in a small black box about a foot forward of the main fuse box. When this blows, the fan stops and the car overheats pretty rapidly - then blows the head gasket. ALWAYS keep your eyes on the temp gauge with these 2.3 models....or else.
