I have exactly the same problem with my '95 300D! Last week I had the car in for brake pad replacements and after they washed the engine, the AC stopped cooling. The compressor would kick off after about 2 seconds. After all dried out, it was OK.

I first experienced it after washing my car a few months ago and then in an extremely heavy rain fall. There is a panel in the back of the engine compartment , passenger side, that houses a lot of wiring that was sourced to be the problem when wet...
