1990 Other Mercedes Benz Models air and heat not working


Air Conditioning problem
1990 Other Mercedes Benz Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 247500 miles

I have a 1990 300E with 247,500 miles. The heat and air quit working so I replaced the blower motor first (didn't fix problem) then I replaced the regulator. The air worked for about 3 minutes then the heat came on and I couldn't adjust the fan speed. So then I replaced the climate control unit with a brand new unit from mercedes (I intend to keep the car for a long time). Nothing at all works with the new unit installed but when I reinstall the old unit I get about 3 minutes of air then heat again. I've checked all the fuses. Any ideas, I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

Do you
have the same problem?

You need to scan it with a MB impulse tester, once you have the codes, all thats left is part replacement, go to an MB shop and have it scanned, or buy a scan tool that can do it!

NOTE: Before proceeding with test, check No. 7 fuse.
1. Connect Impulse Counter (013) to terminal No. 7 of diagnostic connector located in engine compartment. Turn ignition switch on. U BATT indicator light (LED) on impulse counter must be displayed. If LED does not light up, test voltage between terminal No. 1 (ground) of test connector and positive battery terminal. Voltage should be 11-14 volts. 2. Test for voltage between terminals No. 1 and 7 of test connector, voltage should be 6-12 volts. If voltage is not 6-12 volts, check wiring circuit. 3. Start impulse testing procedure. Press start button for no less than 2, but not more than 4 seconds. Observe and write down impulse readout code(s). 4. Press start button again for no less than 2, but no more than 4 seconds. If there are no further system malfunctions, the first indicated code will reappear. If trouble codes are present, repair as indicated. See IMPULSE DISPLAY CODES.
