    My Mercedes E200 1997 car starts with the turning of the key but does not get to the kick-on point - just draining the battery. Attempts were made to jumpstart it with the power pack but still it did not start. The car is now located in a yard along Shepcote Lane, Sheffield. I need it sorted out. Please any help. And especially any local independent mechanics around Sheffield ?

    I wonder if it is the fan short circuit that blows fuse 10 in the ECU box

    try to be clearer about what is/isn't happening - does the engine 'turn over' at a fair lick when you turn the key?.....

    Assuming its a petrol engined car- do you smell petrol- is it getting fuel- have you filled up recently from a strange filling station---- I am thinking contaminated fuel. Other possibility is some form of faulty/ failed immobiliser. You could try the disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour trick- which sometimes resets things---don't close the boot or you won't get back in!
