I bought a 1993 TE300. After apprx. 2 months the idle was going up and down and after the motor got warm, the car stottert. At the Mercedes garage we noticed that the battery is tried out. Oh well, bad maintenance is what I thought. A new battery came in. After 2 months the battery started to stink and smoke came out. Back to the MB garage and exchanged the battery. AFTER 2 weeks, the "new" battery gets hot after a 10 mile drive. Back to the MB garage. Its not the battery and its not the alternator or voltage regulator. Something else is the cause, but what? He thinks its a electrical problem, but to check every single cable it could cost me up to 20 hours of labour.
Anybody any idea? Any ideas greatly appreciated.
