W210 starting fault, not turning over! Stuck in park!

This is a old problem but still pops up every once in a while,

Driving along and ESP/ABS pops up on the display, you stop, switch off and go to restart, nothing, full ign lights but engine not turning over!! Car then refuses to come out of park!

Very easy fix!

Open the bonnet, on the near side inner wing, there your find a black box, should have a air-con sticker on there, remove the lid, four Philips screws, there your find a couple of ECU,s a fuse board, right, there should be a coupe of red 10 amp fuses together, that’s the fault, a blown fuse! This fuse is one of the supply fuses for the ABS control and also the supply fuse to the ECU cooling fan, also in the black box you’re working in, this fan is what has caused the fuse to blow, they seize up!

Now this fan isn’t needed in this country!! What you have to do next is, follow the fuse board to the engine side, there you will find a pair of small twisted wires coming from a the fuse box ( 2 pin blue plug ), un-plug it, replace the blown fuse and fault now fixed!! Cost of job, a 10 amp fuse!!

Its worth cutting off the plug from the fan so that it cant be plugged in again while in fo service
