1982 Mercedes Benz 300sd Two Wheel Drive Automatic 270000 miles
I recently changed the glowplugs and starter on my 300sd - when I attempted to start the car, the engine was silent. I tested the voltage across the starter when the ignition was turned on - 0 volts. I hotwired the car manually and it started without an issue with the new parts. I think this indicates a ignition relay or switch problem? Is there something to replace that is simple and doesn't require 'special' tools that a non mechanic would have? Is it located in the steering column or someplace else? Also - do you guys know where I could find a wiring diagram for a 1982 300 sd?
have the same problem?
