First Off Hello!

I have recently bought a 1996 Mercedes E320 Petrol. The Charge light is intermittently coming on, usually at low revs. Sometimes it will completely stall, other times it sort of stalls then comes back to life. I have just fitted a new alternator but it is still doing it. It is not everytime but intermittent and is very annoying.

The belt seems ok with the pulleys turning freely.

PLEASE HELP!

Hello and welcome,,your fault is difficult if you have a new alternator,,was it brand new or reconditioned. A dim light shows that a diode in the reg pack is at fault,,but this would not affect the car stalling it.

Your car is it a 210,,and welcome to the forum

Do check the wires on X12/3 this is a terminal block from the alternator, and X4 in the foot well,, these are all connected to the alternator.

The stalling could be the MAF going down and is known to cause this on this car
