Customer Question
Changed fuse for blower...

Changed fuse for blower for heat and ac on my 1998 Mercedes benz. A day or two later car wont start. I changed the battery to a new one. I couldn't start the car. I gave it a boost, but it took a while to get the car started. I noticed a bit of smoke coming from the the side I imagine was the fuse box. Hood was closed. Blower is not working. I cant see this making the car not start because common sense the car is turned off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

I have a new battery in there. But it needed a severe boost.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '98 Mercedes?

C230

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C230 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing, changed the fuse for the blower and changed the battery
