Question about 2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

2 Answers

It takes several attempts to start my 2002 C240 -

When i try to start my car it will act as if the battery is dead and won't start...you hear the clicking...after 2 or 3 attempts you hear nothing when you turn the key. sometimes after removing the key and trying again it will start. could this be my starter or alternator or something else? Also, if its the starter what is the price range for repair. I have an ESP will it be covered?

Its most likely your alternator. remove it from your vehicle and take it to auto zone and have it tested. they do not charge you for testing it.

The whole repair should be covered under the ESP. It may be the ignition switch itself in the steering column or the starter solenoid. Some solenoids are remotely mounted from the starter others are an integral part of the starter.

with the key on engine off listen to fuel pump,if you can not hear the pump winning ,the pump is bad

if you can hear it,it might be working but create enough pressure
you can rent a fuel pressure gauge from auto store and check the fuel pressure

The battery seems to be dead but it does respond promptly to the jump start. However when it drives the van can only move at 5-10mph


You say the battery seems dead

I suggest that you test it,you should also
know if it is at least 5 years old & would expect it to go dead

That said, those things you need to know before you
ever attempt to jump a battery

If it isn't capable of taking a charge,then your
basically creating an unsafe act & bad things
could happen to that battery & you

If the battery is dead & the vehicle is running
on the alternator,then the electronics won't work
& you go 10 mph or not at all or worst.

The lack of power could be any number of things
Work on the battery issues,then continue on

Car wont start after I ran out of gas


Take off the smaller wire off the starter motor. Put the key in the start position and hold it there for a few seconds. Listen for the fuel pump running. If you hear it running then it feels like it stopped, then let go of the key and reinstall that wire on the starter motor. It should start.

Acts like dead battery, all instrament lights work, put on batt charger still woturn over acts like dead batt, is there some kind of fuse? or what? help plz


maybe it really is a dead battery. Headlights bright? dim? if the lights are bright and you try to start it and they go out or dim, either the battery is bad, or a bad connection. Try to wiggle the cables at the battery.

My 2002 impala wont start i just hear a click when i turn key


You have a dead Battery, have the Battery tested, it should have a static charge of at least 11-12 volts, if lower than that, replace the Battery.
