The only thing left to fix on my 1994 E320 is the air con. Thanks to this forum, I was able to sort the starting problem, get the rear washer working again and restore all of the dashboard illumination.

When I press any of the air con switches on the climate control panel, nothing happens. There is no change in temperature and no noises suggesting anything is happening. I suspect that the air con may be disconnected. Can someone please tell me where the electrical connections are for the air con on my car?

I take it that the heater works OK and you have hot and cold air

Chances are that after 15 years it may well benefit from a recharge but have you checked the fuses? Is it a factory fit or aftermarket system? I think the fuse location may differ between the two. On mine (Diavia) there are two fuses located by the nearside suspension turret.
There's a superb troubleshooting guide in the DIY section. http://forums.mercedesclub.org.uk/showthread.php?t=39101

The heater and demister work okay, with hot and cool air. I had the gas recharged on the last but one service and they put dye in to check for leaks. When I took the car back, the air con man wasn't there, so it wasn't checked.

I'm not sure if the air con is factory or aftermarket; I'm fairly sure it's original but I'll have a look to confirm. While I'm at it, I'll check for these additional fuses. I've already looked at the fusebox and everything in there is fine.
