MB 170SV 1954 starting problem
« on: May 19, 2011, 08:12:13 AM »
Hi

I'm new here on this forum, so I can introduce myself. My name is Glenn, 27 years old and comes from Norway. I drive a black Mercedes 170SV from 1954.
The car has been in the garage some years now because of a bad starter. The starter is in order, but has problems with the start solenoid.
Is there anyone in here that got one that works that they don't use? Does anyone know where one can buy a new one on the internet?

Best regards
Glenn Solheim

Hello,

I have solenoids.

Is your start push button OK ?

Yes, the startbutton is OK i think.
Everytime i push the startbutton all the electric shuts down and nothing happen. It may be easier to change the whole solnoid rather than fix it.

How much for a solenoid?

Hej Glenn,

I will search for a solenoid tomorrow and test the function.
After that I will send you a personal message.
