500e Ovp

Picked my car up yesterday at the shop & they had jump started it. I now have ABS & ASR lights as well as occasional stalling. Sounds like OVP fuse. Can somebody tell me where it is located on my '93 500E? Thanks!!

Walker;
Look on the pass. rear of the eng. compartment behind the control unit box,it may have a black plastic shield in front of it.
Good luck.

NOPE! Your car uses a base module instead of OVP You will need to take the cover off of the computer storage box located under the hood on the passenger side.

Once the top is off, you will see a module with about 7 fuses in the top. Replace them all when the cover is off.

Thumbs up

Donnie,
Thanks! I didn't see any cover on the pass. side (as mentioned in other posts about the 6 cyl. cars) other than the one you mention which has allen screws holding it down. I will take a look.

Smile problem solved!

That fixed it! There are 4 fuses under the cover (F1-F4). F1 was blown. I replaced them all anyway as suggested. Thanks again.

Sorry for overlooking that Jay!

Glad you are on your way with your 500E. From your vehicle list I see you have quiet a collection of Speed Machines, must be rough deciding which car to take? Wish I had that problem.

Happy motoring...

Ross,
Yeah, I am pretty much a car nut. The cars I have now have been on my wish list for years.

I remember an article in Car & Driver in the early '90s that raved about the 500E. The writer had taken delivery of his in Germany & said he didn't see how they could ever improve a car beyond that point. It seemed WAY out of reach back then but, a friend of ours Dad bought one in '93. I didn't find out until their wedding rehearsal in '96 when I pulled up & saw it in the driveway. That was my first exposure to one in the flesh & next to our 300E that we had at the time, the differences were amazing. They really look like two totally different cars when put next to each other. I bugged him about selling it to me from then on. He said he never would but, in July 0f 2000, he retired & his new wife decided she wanted a convertible as a toy instead of the 500E. He has regretted buying that Vette convertible & selling me the 500E ever since. I sold my '96 Carrera to buy it & haven't regretted it a day since.

I am glad I found all you guys on this site. The knowledge & true appreciation of what these cars are all about is great.

Jay
