Hi my mercedes wont start , i went out to start it , it started then cut out and now the engine turns over but the car wont start. The coil light stayed on after i started the motor for a few weeks prior to this problem, has that got something to do with it maybe. cheers

    hey first thing I do when one wont start is I try to persuade it .. Give it a little shot of starting fluid or gasoline in the air cleaner then try to start it. if it starts you got probably fuel pump problems or a clogged fuel filter .. thanks Jerry and hholler if you need more.

Hi
Did you mean oil light ?
If so.... have you checked your engine oil level ?

If this is a diesel, perhaps you mean the cold start glow plugs light ?

If this light does not go out, the problem is in this department, normally fuse or the relay.
If it is really cold, this is why the engine will not start, as the glow plugs are not functioning.

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating, almost a Guru !

Mercedes c220 elegance engine cranks but won't start. There is no spark at the plugs could be the coils or what?


most likely it is the ignition spark control and not just the coils. chances that all you coils went out at the same time is nil. ignition module i would check around for prices but a new one might be a dealer only part..check the web....

Mercedes c220 ignition key stopped working


Hi! Sounds like the key needs to be coded again, take all relvant details i.e. chassis vin number, Registration document (Title) and key to your local Mercedes Dealership and hopefully they'll rec-code it for youor replace it.
Good Luck and a Happy New Year to You and your family.

Car problems


Sounds to be a loose or corroded wire/s at either starter motor or at battery fusible links.
Also check the earth strap (Cable) between engine and bodywork.
Hope this helps, MMP
