Hello. Can you give me some more history on the issue and what you have done and how you came to knowing that the compressor affected the starting ?

After hearing this it sounds to me like the front fuse box had internally shorted which happens a lot on the w164 so let me know and we can figure this out. Also give me time to respond I will always see your responses. And I will always respond. Lou P
