230CLK 2000 Not Starting

Hi, my 2000 230 CLK has been in the driveway unused for about 3 months now. I have fitted a new battery and all electrics seem ok, but car will not turn over. When key fob is inserted "control on" click is present. Ignition tumbler feels sticky. When turning key to auto start it sticks in position. Interior was slightly damp because I have found that the window seal is letting in water. What is the most likely problem for it not to be starting?

Go to any Automotive Parts Supplier (Advance Auto Parts) and tell them that you want a 9 volt battery backup that plugs into the cigarette lighter.......Or if you have a jump box,you with a 12 volt outlet plug on it,buy the cord that connects the outlet plug on jump box to the cigarette lighter outlet plug in the car.......Either option will give you the juice that you need.....I just hope that your boot is electronically operated
