94-95 E320s
Was the infamous wiring harness problem in the '86 to '93 W124s corrected with the '94 and '95 E320s? I'm considering buying one but want to be sure (as much a possible) that I won't have the nightmare I had with my '93 300E. Thanks!

The infamous wiring harness problem DOES NOT apply to KE cars (124 chassis 1986 -1992). It applies to the rest of them including 95 (I think).

My info has possible wire harness insulation problem from man. dates of 8/92 thru 5/95.

I don't see any problem on my '94 E320 regarding wire harness.

This has been discussed at considerable length repeatedly since I've been here. It seems pretty obvious that the engine wiring harnesses are bad from 93-95, and affect mainly or exclusively different versions of the M104 engine. I think Benzmac or M.B. DOC posted a really good reply of which engines and chasis the bad harnesses come equipped on not too long ago.

Do a search on engine wiring harness and one or both of their member names and see what comes up.

It has been speculated by two of the moderators that the insulation on the wiring harnesses was altered to:

1. prevent rodents from eating the wires.
2. allow the wires to be more recycleable.

In any event, the insulation degrades in the car, and a whole bunch of terrible things happen, from making the car run bad, to unending check engine light problems, to ruining the computer.

In my opinion, and many others, they are all bad, and if yours hasn't gone bad yet, it will.

fyi- can verify that the '94 E320 Coupe was affected by wiring harness weakness
