Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Does the engine turn over but not start, or not turn over at all?
Also, you have it listed as 94 and 96, so I need to know which it is
Ok, a faulty crankshaft shaft position sensor will not prevent the engine from turning over. This will be in the starting system.
I am going to need the last 8 of the vin number to pull the starting system schematics.
Have you checked for 12v at the starter while someone turns the key to the crank position
Ok, there is a service bulletin out on this. The most common cause is a faulty starter lockout relay, located behind top right corner of dash(see attached photo)
You have to remove the passenger side airbag to reach it(see attached)
