Question about Mercedes-Benz C230
I went to start my car this morning and it would not start. All the lights and the panel lights come on in the car and the doors unlocked the battery is good but the car would not come on. I moved the gear to make sure that the car was in park and still nothing happens. I am not getting any malfunctions either.
Try again in neutral. Then wiggle the key up and down a few times to see if there is a loose connection in the ignition. You may have a bad starter or a bad ground in the starter. The thrust gear may not be springing back, or the solenoid may be faulty. The final thing it could be is a fusible link inside the wire harness.

Crank shaft position sensor is bad. This is the most common failure. Its location is on the rear drivers side of engine, where the transmission bell housing mates to the engine, only one small bolt and a two prong electrical connector hold it on. Usually will not throw a trouble code. If you remove it you can test it with an ohm meter, will have an erratic reading or read open loop, can malfunction intermittently or permanently after parking vehicle and won't restart. Applying some heat source to it during ohm testing with a hot air heat gun will usually cause the sensor to read open loop if your not sure if its bad or not. This reply is probably way to late, but I just happened to come accross it while online. Harry (master certified MBZ diagnostic tech)

Some times you could get them out of park by pounding on the top of the shifter while moving it out of park at the same time. You need a new shifter assembly. If it won't come out of park, they can drag it onto a flatbed.

under the rf floor board in the front you will see a false panel after removing carpet. remove false panel by loosening 10 mm plastic nuts your alarm module is 1 of the 2 modules on that false floor-it should have a 820 number in the part number-if it is not obvious call parts dept. and cross reference numbers-unplug module and you won't have worry about that annoying alarm anymore-hopefully i have been helpful

Sounds like a battery problem. The clicking sound is usually the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter but not enough voltage or amps. There has to be enough power or you will not be able to move shifter assuming you pushed the brake pedal down while trying to shift out of park. And, it hasn't been noted whether it is a manual or auto trans.

It's not that unusual for a battery to fail that soon, and the "no lights, no nothing" says that it's the battery again. Your best bet at this point is to pull the battery and take it to the point of purchase for testing. They should either replace it under warranty or charge it for you. After you replace the battery you should have the charging/electrical system checked for possible shorts or power drains.
