fuel gage and temperature gages stopped working on 92 190E

the fuel gage and the temperature gage on my sons 92 190E 2.6 stopped working yesterday. I am assuming it is a fuse but could not find one tht looked bad. Could some one please tell me which one it might be. I would really appreciate it . And if anyone knows where I can get an owners mnual for his car. His was stolen when they broke in and stole his stereo. I presume they wanted the leather case.

I experienced my car's gauges on the left side temp/oil pressure/fuel working intermittently - changed fuse #9 even though it looked ok and the gauges have behaved since.

My experience with fuses on this car is that even though they look good, there may be hairline cracks on them resulting in intermittent problems.

I used to experience intermittent loss of my aux fan and radio/clock/dome light.Both of these problems were also attributed to faulty fuses looking OK.

Ever since I swapped out ALL the fuses in my car with the fuse upgrade kit, no intermittent power problems at all.

My 2 cents, for what it's worth.

Cheers.

i agree with azhari and would check fuse numbers 9 and 14.

the fuse can look normal on superficial examination but a detailed inspection will highlight poor contact due to corrosion or a blown fuse-swap these two fuses with ones of similar amps and see if it cures your problems.

on some cars there are a few spare fuses in the fuse box itself.

so have a good look good around.
