It was a relay
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok, so relay L is the starter relay. Are you sure you placed it back in the correct slots? Is the shifter in park?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there another fuse box or fuse in the car I need a - somewhere that I don't know about that I need to check or look for that I might have blown that gives power to the ignition
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago
Hi, are there any other symptoms that you can tell me about that might help me track down the problem? All you told me was that you removed the starter relay and put it back in place and then the car stopped. That does not give me very much to go on. Can you give me all of the background on the problem? Why did you remove the relay in the first place?
