Hey how are you

when the battery died , The anto theft system got triggered prevenytong start up,since you charged (make sure it is holding ) or replace if in doubt )

we need to reset the anto theft ,this isusualy done using Star Mercedes scaneer but we can try the manual way

do below procedure

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

If that does not work ,have it scanned and post fault back to me and i can help further,if there was no issue with the car prior the battery dying then it should work,but the battery dying is bad or weak or something causing that drain on it , this needs to be addressed ,to find a battery drain use below procedure

Battery Drainage Test

1- Voltmeter
2- settings on voltmeter will be on milli amps.
3- go across all the fuses in the car and see which one is reading higher than 0.3 to 0.5 milli amps
4- the fuse drawing more than 0.5 miili amps ,will be the suspected circuit that needs inspection for the drainage.

You are very welcome :)
