    Where is the OVP relay located in a 95 w124 , I think there is a fuse in there that can affect the rev counter.

    Behind the battery, against the bulkhead under a plastic cover. It has a fuse on top.

    Well at least that is where mine is on my 95 W124 estate.

    Yes its there on all 124's, but it will not be the problem,,,the speed signal needs to be checked on the passenger side kick panel on the green/ yellow wires, and I think green/ black on pin A9 on the cluster

    Found it and the 10amp fuse was blown replaced it now rev counter works. But now the glowplug light on dash does not come on, car starts as usual considering there's a broken glow plug . Any suggestions as to the glowplug light now not coming on.

    That fuse if broken would bring the ABS light on the cluster. Hope this helps.
