Tonya, Do you have a Haynes manual? Chilton's produced a two volume set on Italian and Swedish cars during the 70s that is much better. Check your fuse--I presume you are using the original "bullet" type German fuses--is it the correct amperage? Check your wiring schema--what else is on the fuse that you can live without? If it's feeding back into the fuse block, how are your condensers (1-2?) faring?
