    Well, I mentioned that sometimes the dash lights flicker up after starting the engine. This is only when depressing the brake pedal and includes dash, front and rear parking and brake lights. Press...

    I had suspected the headlight switch, too since itīs the common denominator. Thatīs why I cleaned the connector and flooded the switch with radio tuner spray. Will have to test the terminals like the...

    PO had installed a new alternator. Could it be that my regulator needs terminals jumpered momentarily for a reset? My ī56 Cadillac needs that to be done anytime the generator is disconnected from the...

    Yup, no matter if engine off or on - flickers. But like I said not everytime.
    Regulator is still from 1984. I definitely gotta check the connector for oxidation and ground at the housing.
    how would...

    Still flickers with brake switch disconnected.
    I noticed that the insturment cluster, ATC and ashtray lights also flicker in sync with the brake lights. But not every time.
    Yesterday I had the...

    Apparently I have one spare from my 84 F250. Iīll try it.
    But the flicker is only with lights on. Not when they are off.

    Too bad that the multifunction switch is not easily acessible for spray...

    I checked grounds. They are ok. Even cleaned them to be sure.

    I observed the following:
    When tail lights are ON and you look closely you can see the brake/turn light filaments to flicker very...

    Window run channels are still good except for the driverīs side upper 90 degree corner. That one was gone and I had to find a replacement. It fitīs but not like the OEM stuff. Did not buy in the...

    I used six rolls of aluminum-butyl mats and did the entire trunk without deck lid. Package tray, behind rear seat, rear wheel arches, doors (outer and inner - totally sealing up all openings here),...

    Yes, I think (hope) so. The only issue Iīm having so far is speed control dropping out when lights are on. This is due to PO messing with the turn/brake/tail lights to meet german laws where you need...

    Hi Arquemann,
    yeah, I pulled a lotta hairs. I had read too much about the CFI EECIV issues that I totally overlooked the idle.

    And yes, Iīm a bit proud to get this good mileage. 16 mpg I get...
  13. UPDATE - UPDATE! Plunger fail prooved!

    I just swapped sensors from my Town Car and disassembled the non-working one this minute.

    And now itīs officially prooved:
    The plunger fails!

    Behind the plunger is a small plastic rod,...
  14. Finally fixed! ATC Sensor fully working again!

    Hi, I fixed my spare sensor!

    Caution! Glueing the plunger in the outermost position will not work. The plunger protrudes too far and the valve will not seal.
    Jamming a piece of wood behind the...
  15. Radio NOT culprit for stall - curb idle set too low.

    Well, Iīm kinda ashamed for not checking the most obvious first: curb idle!
    Hence I must correct my radio/bluetooth cuplrit thing. This had nothing to do with the stall. I verified it this weekend...
  16. Stalling solved - caused by radio turned on - bluetooth module in suspicion!

    Hi, I think I solved the mysterious random stalling on decel or hard stop.
    It must be caused by the radio, or better said very likely the bluetooth module I piggybacked onto the stock tape radio to...
  17. Thanks, Iīll check grounds.

    Thanks, Iīll check grounds.
  18. Speed control drops out after a feww sec when headlights are on.

    Any ideas?
    84 Town Car.

    It must be electrical.

    Brake/turn signal light circuit had been modified to meet german laws that require a amber turn signal.
    The two bulbs per light assembly had...

    Ah, now I understand.
    The stall is gone now with the new TFI connector.

    Putty around the drain did the trick. Itīs sealed.

    There is some 1/2" cloth/jute piece glued onto the carpet back in the footwell area. Then thereīs a layer of rubber backed jute/cloth padding on...

    Ha funny, you donīt see many of these Mercedes around here in Germany anymore. This generation seems to be gone already.

    Thanks, that was the drain the aero writeup was all about.
    I checked last night and it is leaking from there. Cleaned all dirt and mud from out of there. Still leaking.
    Iīll seal around with...
  23. 84 Town Car firewall water leak fix - same as 90 up gen HVAC drain flap?

    Found a writeup for fixing water leaks from the firewall on a 92 Crown Victoria. The HVAC drain flap needs to be resealed with putty thrugh the wheel well with pulled apron.
    Does this also work on...

    EGR valve had been cleaned. No deposit on the pintle and leak free seating. High idle is not controlled via an IAC solenoid on my 84 but vacuum kicker. EGR is however solenoid controlled.
  25. Makes no difference so I conclude EGR is fine....

    Makes no difference so I conclude EGR is fine. Weīll see if the stalling was cured by the new connector by time to come. Gotta check curb idle rpms with my meter - probably needs a tad of tweaking up.
