1991 Mercedes Benz 300e 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
Hi. I was driving down the road the other day, stopped my car for a few minutes, and when I started it again I sensed something was wrong; it didn't charge, but the battery lamp wasn't lit up(no warning lamps was).
I turned off all electricity and managed to get home and turned of the car. It was of course not enough power left on the battery to start it again, so I used jumper cables. The strange thing was that when I turned the key, right before the engine starts when all the warning lights are supposed to be lit, only the ABS-light was lit? I'm wondering if this has something to to with the car not charging? (The ABS light went dark again when the engine started, I have and have never had any problems with the ABS, but this lamp was the only one acting " normally" ).
I will measure the voltage drop over the battery and the alternator, and check if the wire to/from the battery warning lamp is ok, but I suspect the mistake might be something else, like the control unit?
Anyone have any ideas, and know how to rfind out what's wrong?
