Start the car with engine running remove the + battery cable. If engine continues to run alternator is good and battery is probably bad. If engine dies then alternator needs replaced.

if you have a multi meter disconnect positve battery terminal and put red wire to battery and black to battery cable put multi meter on resistance should be 0.005 or less if more then check for things that may be plugged in to cig lighter etc turn door lights off etc dont turn key on any more than 0.005 will drain battery

SOURCE: Slow drain on battery,checked all inside

Trunk light stays on??

What model year is this car?
Put an ammeter and see how many amps are being drawn (don't blow the meter by turning on big items like blower fan, etc... remember you are looking for a draw when "everything" is off

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Your alternator is not charging the Battery, I would replace the battery with a new gel battery and have the alternator checked, bets on your battery just died.

the symtoms you describe sounds like a battery fault. but if you have had the battery properley tested and is good then you either have something discharging the battery intermittantly ie. trunk light staying on or a high resistance in the main battery leads or earth connections
