New battery In mercedes no power

I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

1983 mercedes 300d turbo diesel automatic electrical problem

There is a junction block about 6 inches in front of the battery on the fender, there should be battery voltage on the big wires. The small wire is the starter solenoid. Front the junction block, the power goes to the light switch then to the ignition switch.

Good Luck

Why won't my 02' mercedes Benz sclass 430 START???

I guess all that's left is the ignition switch itself, or else the transmission is not completely going in to park. Next time it does it, try jamming it into park again, and see what happens. If no difference, change the ignition switch. Not the key and tumbler, the actual switch, which should be on your steering column, but given the fact that i am not that familiar with MB, suggest you ask at a parts place.
