I had this happen on my 86 560SL after it sat for a month. I reseated the OVP and it was OK. Nonetheless, I replaced it with one that I had taken apart and resoldered. I can't say if moving it while reseating it made the problem go away or if it was bad contacts.

The OVP is in a really inconvenient spot on this car!
