I put a new battery in my s500 yr.2003 and it keeps draining after an hr. or so what could be the problem


You really should have a Technician look at your electrical system.

You could start at the fuse panel and check with Volt meter for running devices. Also could be a alternator problem

Can the current usage by Speedo-Meter when car is switched-off which can drain the battery completely overnight


To check this remove the earth wire on the battery and connect an amp meter in the circuit. If the current draw is less than 1 amp ( even that will be excessive for instruments ) the battery should last 48 hours . I would be checking for a heavy current draw indicating a unit shorting out internally or a battery that has an internal short problem. Have a load test done on the battery to check this. Clocks and speedo and odometer always use power after being switched off as that is how they keep time and mileage recordings so the current draw is in milliamps. Even the ECM draws power when off as that is how it keeps the CPU program going and why sometimes the problems start when the battery is changed out or disconnected.

My 2000 S500 mercedes will not start. the key turns but the engine will not crank. it has a new battery


Does it click or do anything? If not, then the plastic gears inside the ignition that control the vehicles ACC and ON positions along with the cranking may have slipped. Have someone to pull the ignition switch panel and check and make sure the "gears" are working properly.

My 2000 Mercedes Benz S500 is dead- electronic key does not


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.

Climate control


If you unclick the top button on the time set screen, you can manually set the clock for the instrument pod which will stay on time. Clicking it back on will allow the GPS to set the clock, but it has been explained to me that it will only reset itself in nav mode and then only when it wants to. Funny how Lexus has no problem with this, but then again Maserati wanted to use only Bosch/Blaupunkt which has a useless nav system without street names, etc., like on my father's Mercedes S500 (which is why I can recognize the poor controls, un-automatic A/C-heating system, etc). Would be nice if the beautiful analog clock everyone looks at could tell time accurately.
