Sorry Peter, it wasn't a smart-ass answer, just the opposite as a matter of fact.
I believe you can use a voltmeter to read this if it has a duty cycle position.

Where would one find the OVP fuse on a 260e? I replaced my OVP a few months ago, and I don't recall seeing a fuse in the device.

Thanks in advance.

The OVP has a clear flip open lid on top, there is a red 10 amp fuse under the lid.

Thanks Gilly, I'll have to take a look in the morning. My ABS light has been coming on, and initially I had thought it was my OVP, but it is still happening, so I'm going to check my ABS sensors for grease/dirt. I've been having pwr loss problems lately as well, and I never thought that the OVP could be the culprit. See http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/tech-help/78020-260e-power-loss-odd-smell.html#post493520

Do you know if the 260e has a similar fuel mixture adjustment as is discussed in this thread?

The system in the 260E would be almost identical to the system discussed in this thread you posted a link to (CIS-E injection)

Same problem different car

I have been out all night installing a new fuel injection head on my 560 SEL. Before the car would start after cranking for several seconds (seems more like minutes). When it did start the car idled very roughly, and any pressure on the gas/air pedal would would result in the car shutting off. So I replaced the head as my local tech suggested, now it won't start at all. I can hear fuel at the head, and the car will fire IF I let the pumps run for a minute or so. I checked my OVP fuse it is ok, however the car has been jump started several times. Should I replace the OVP, or do I have a mixture problem.

I am going to the dealership in the morning, they are happy to help me because I went to UTI. Any help here would be appreciated.
