Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi and Welcome to Just Answer! are you available to chat now?
Do you hear e click in the ignition switch when key is inserted? are you able to see selector gear position on instrument cluster display? if so are you able to shift between gears when ignition is in on position?
Do you have access to Diagnostic scanner able to scan DAS (drive authorization system)?
There can be few reasons for no start, Ignition key(but we can rule out key as you have tried 2 different keys)
EIS- electronic ignition switch failure, Inteligent servo module for direct selct gears
Engine computer failure, Starter relay, fuse F122 located in front fuse box - right front of engine compartment
and last Bad starter motor.
the first thing to do is:- access fuse F122 - fuse are numbered. you can see fuse number stanped on the fuse box right beside each fuse. use test light connected to Good ground and check for power in that fuse as key is turned to start position
if you have power at the fuse, then you have a failed starter motor, if you do not have power at the fuse.
proper diagnostic scanner is needed to scan the system and retrieve fault codes which will point to the failing component or
communication problems on the CAN network.
Please check and get back to me with any results or questions
Best Regards Pavlin!
okay, so it is the starter
last check you need to do before changing the starter is that there is no problem with Battery supply power cable to starter, and you have power to starter solenoid when key is in start position. if all is good replace starter, if you see a problem, repair wiring.
It is fuse F122 that goes to starter, it is same thing. but if you want you can go directly to the starter. You have one large cable to starter from battery and one small wire coming from Fuse 122. you can apply power directly to the small wire at starter solenoid. it will have the same effect as supplying power to fuse 122. the only problem can be if wire between fuse 122 to starter is broken.
smal wire going to starter solenoid is Violet color or violet with white stripe
okay, but it is 99% starter issue. just go to starter and short battery supply to sygnal wire, starter shout turn. if nothing happens or you have heavy sparking - replace starter
You need to go directly to starter motor on engine block.
you are welcome
Sure, any time that is convenient for you.
Circuit 30 is battery voltage, check battery charge
Hi, how it goes?
