Hello everyone

I live In Svensen OR, and spend most of my free time working on my cars or hiking and biking. The '98 230 is my wife's. She got it used sometime ago and had been her daily driver up to about a year ago when she quit driving. So the car has just been sitting. So the other day I put on new coil packs, boots, wires, and MSD iridium pugs, K&N air filter, fuel filter. Battery was no good, so I put in an Optima yellow top deep cycle. Thought everything was fine. Checked the battery while it was running. Its not being charged, and the charge warning light isn't coming on. The warning light works when you first turn on the key. Anyway, I'll keep looking. Hope to learn a lot of information through here. So, Hello to everyone again!

Welcome to The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
