2002 Mercedes c240 won't start

I just bought a used mercedes a week ago, having owned a mercedes before, I never experienced serious issues with the last car. I drove it home off the lot the first night, got gas (premium) and took it straight to my place, parked out front and car would not start when I tried to start it again 10 minutes later. Car company towed car and said it was the starter or battery, even mercedes said the same thing. They replaced it and I went to pick up the car today. Drove it to the bank about 20 minutes from the car lot and it won't start again. All the lights and radio etc. come on and work fine but car does not make a sound when I put the key in and try to turn. I read somewhere it could be a fuse issue?? PLEASE HELP!! car is still sitting at the bank and if it is a fuse I will go and buy one right now. Anybody have any ideas!!??

SOURCE: car won't start

Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Hi there.
You must have a drain some where.
Make sure the brake light are NOT staying on. if they are, it will drain the battery. this is due to faulty brake light switch.
I think the ESP light is related to the brake light switch.

How To Change Oxygen Sensors in 2002 Mercedes C240 Sedan?


I do not know the part numbers but you have 4 sensors. 2 pre and 2 post catalytic converter. The pre sensors are the most sensitive and are generally the ones to fail. the rear sensors usually have a heater circuit problem. If your just replacing them for routine service interval I would just do the fronts. They connect to the engine wire harness in the front of the transmission pan. You may need an o2 sensor socket to remove the fronts. They are just a 22mm. in size.
