itcould be a starter fault, or other things...

if you have a multimeter and a little basic electrical understanding read on. remove the largeish cover under the bonnet at the rear, passenger side - 4x screws. under here you will see lots of wiring and control modules. the module at the front will have many wires on top, one will be a large diameter purple wire, check here for 12v when trying to start the car. if no power here, check the fuses mounted in this module. then get back to us.

If a new member comes onto benzworld and MB world and ask a question, and the answer is in their locked files, they are not too politely told to go and look
