ignition problem 240 D

update 12/6 - I found the problem, it was the ignition start switch, got another one
and everything works now. Don

update 12/3--- I have traced the circuit ffrom the starter to the light switch then over to the ignition switch. I get nothing out of 15 when I turn the key. my question is do I have to replace the whole ignition switch????? or can I just replace the tumbler or is there a way to clean the tumbler????? tks, Don

I had a thread this summer on restoring my 1975 240d. It had a bad engine and I recently put in a used one. The problem I have now, I have to run a jump wire on the fuse buse on the engine firewall
from fuse 1 to 2 to get pwr to the ignition switch. I have traced the power from the battery to the starter and then to the light switch on the
dash. I assume from the light switch it goes over to the ignition switch???? I would appreciate if anyone could send me the circuit or tell me the flow and what to check to correct this problem. tks, Don

If you are in the US, you can order a CD that has all of the wiring diagrams you need for this vehicle.
