[MBZ] Blown fuse

2015-07-14 Thread WILTON via Mercedes
SWMBO came in from short trip in the '87 300D, leaned over back of chair in 
cool living room where I was napping and announced, Blown fuse in the car.  I 
was driving along with air conditioning blasting away nicely, and it just quit. 
 Don't ya think it's a blown fuse?  

I replied, Yep; sure hope that's all it is.  'Hobbled out to car thinking 30 
amp blower fuse had blown.  Loosened the two mounting screws thinking the fuse 
would fall apart as I removed it, but it did not.   Checked fuses in fuse box; 
'found #7 (for compressor and coupla other things) blown.  Because of my shaky 
hands, called SWMBO to help me put blower fuse back in place and RR #7.  A/C 
blowing ice cold again.  

BTW, I did NOT change ALL the fuses.  ;)

ATTABOY and ATTAGIRL!

BTW, I never found that many blown fuses and never had much problem 
in MBs  I twist em around sometimes if I think there may be a 
problem, but I've never replaced good fuses for the fun of it.  A 
small way I differed from our beloved Herr Doktor.  His climate in PA 
must have been different than mine.


On the 56 Karmann GHia, I had fuse problems.  That is where I learned 
to twist em.  Those were exposed under the hood.MB fuses in a 
nice tight fusebox hold up well.


CURIOSITY:

Did MB ever stop using German (DIN?) fuses in favor of the 'merkun type?

SWMBO came in from short trip in the '87 300D, leaned over back of 
chair in cool living room where I was napping and announced, Blown 
fuse in the car.  I was driving along with air conditioning blasting

Tired fuse?
Otherwise, why did Dr. Booth recommend changing them out?

I replied, Yep; sure hope that's all it is.  'Hobbled out to car

 used to work great doesn't exonerate any of the components.

 Just a reminder, the tachometer system on a '85 is different
 than all the other years of W123s.

 I'll echo that!

  On the 56 Karmann GHia, I had fuse problems.  That is where
  I learned to twist em.  Those were exposed under the
  hood.MB fuses in a nice tight fusebox hold up well.

 A bit of grease on the ends of the fuses helps too. *smiles*
