Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Mercedes Benz C230 . I have replaced the battery couple of weeks ago now sometimes the starts( cranks) and sometimes it makes clicking noise and then starts after trying couple of time. My mechanic checked the battery and starter and he said those good. Do I need need to replace ingition switch? If the ignition switch is bad then why the car starts sometimes. Do I need reprogram my key? If it does then why does the car cranks sometimes . I am just confuse .

If the starter is clicking it could still be a bad starter or a connection problem has to be one of the two

2006 Mercedes-Benz c230 will not start


At 12.3 volts you are down to about 50 % of battery and if you are going to attempt to start it again the battery should be charged so the engine spins at a nice fast rate. Having said that have you checked for spark? Is there an ignition fuse?

And I would try the code analyzer. Nothing to lose and all to gain.

1997 Mercedes c230 turns over fire once and die out


Have you tried first priming and purging the fuel lines of air bubbles prior to replacing the fuel pump filters? If you did and the engine still won't turn, otherwise you'll also have ignition problems. If the Toyota cars have 4 reasons the engine won't run, the Mercedes Benz has 101 reasons why the engine won't run, so to speak. So you start checking on the fuel pressure, fuel injection voltage or signals, spark ignition and all the way to the throttle sensors, crank pos senseor, ecu, or even the car alarm/immobilizer.... But first keep trying on purging all the air bubbles (with the Schrader purge valve on the rack) and make sure you have adequate voltage on your battery for high speed cranking, sometimes these will take a while at first.
