Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

Car won't start.

I disconnected the central lock pump and the sound disappeared. But now the car won't start. It cranks, but the battery is dead and won't hold charge either. I put gas in the car, but still no dice. Car started fine before pump started draining battery.

Hello again, You could now have a driver authorization problem.
1. Plug your central locking pump back in.
2. Make sure that your remote batteries are good.
3. Lock and unlock the car with the remote.
4. Try to start car.
5. If no start you may have to synchronize the anti-theft system.
6. Point remote at the interior rear view mirror, press button on remote twice and turn ignition key key on within 30 seconds.
7. Turn key off and then back on and try to start car.
If car starts, you will need to find out why the pump won't shut off.
You may be able to unplug the pump after you are able to start the car but this I am not sure of.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

Cranks and then goes dead


First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

Sounds like battery or battery cable problems to me.
If the battery is bad, you cannot trust ANYTHING the computer is telling you. They tend to set all kinds of codes when the battery has a shorted cell. (including fuel pump circuit and transmission system codes) They get "delirious" from malnutrition. You need to have your charging/starting system thoroughly tested.

My van won't start


if it cranks then check the starter, if you get nothing, then check the battery. It could be fuel delivery (fuel pump). It could be clogged or just dead. You could also check the fuel filter if it starts and sputters out. If the fuel pump is bad you will not hear it prime up.. Turn your car to ACC (not start) and see if you hear the electric whuzzzzzing sound of the pump activating. this should tell you if it is working or not.

I have 1989 300e mercedes. If i drive and let sit overnight it will not start. Battery dead. I replaced the battery and alternator. If i charge battery for less than 5 minutes it will crank and start up....


Do the fans run properly and shut off when cars is off? If not they may be draining the battery. A bad stock antenna could drain battery because of the control module. Also the central locking pump if it keeps running (its supposed to shut off after 30 seconds) but if it fails it will drain the battery.

Disconnect each system 1 by 1 or pull fuses 1 by 1 to find out. I would believe its your neutral safety switch tho. Its on the transmission.
