1987 Mercedes Benz 190e 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
Scenario: Battery seems to be discharged when headlights are on. Anti-lock Light comes on, which to my understanding means less than 10v output. Car then slowly dies, battery dead. Have had two replacement batteries. Charge systems checks show everything fine. No erratic electrical behaviors. When low, turning lights on causes RPM gauge to rise even though the engine is idling and it's RPM in fact is not changing!
Any ideas? Possible weak spots like harness? Btw, it does not like to start in cold weather, runs very rough until it warms up. Then it purrs. I had a major-major done within the last 12 months (under 7000 miles ago).
have the same problem?
