ML 350 Start Error

I have a 2004 ML 350, 40k miles full service history with Mercedes. Have had no issues with the car until two days ago when I attempted to start the car, there was a click but no attempt to turn over or fire. Jump started the car, noticed the radio was requesting a code, assumed the battery was flat. Drove the car for 30 minutes to charge the battery. turned engine off, would not re-start. No power to open windows or turn heater fans on. attempted to jump start the car again but get a Start Error message, when i reomve the donor battery I get no message just a click noise - suggestions as to the fault and possible resolution

It was purchased used 4 days ago and has 81000 one owner miles. There is a message light that says " SOS drive to repair shop. Whar could this be? The car drives, runs, and rides perfect.


That message means the Teleaide system is not working. IT has nothing to do with performance. The most common cause of failure are the buttons in the console.

2004 ml350 wrench code 25d what is it


It means that your car will want service in 25 days. I'm guessing you don't put a lot of miles on your car. The MB Assyst system will request a service every 365 days or 13,000 miles, whichever comes first.

2004 ml350 wrench code 2d what is it


Hello, The Wrench is telling you that your car is due for Service, Simply an oil change and some inspections are due. The 2D means that the service is due in 2 days. Hope that helps, You can go to a Mercedes dealer but they are way over priced, I would recommend finding a local independent Mercedes shops. Usually they are run by Technicians who worked at the dealers anyway. Just FYI.

2005 ml 350 error 730 d


Check the connector on side of trans, these are notorious for fluid seeping through the connector and going up harness and in to tcm, if tcm not contaminated replace connecter on trans then recheck... if the fluid is not contaminated it should cure the problem. if fluid is contaminated then it probably an internal problem.
Hope this helps.

After replacing the Battery in My 2003 ML 350, The radio stop working and the engine starts but do not idle. Does any one know what could be the cause of this problem


It's a Mercedes, so electrical issues are extremely common. The ML especially of that year is about the most problematic car Mercedes ever produced.
It has issues everywhere from short circuits due to the wiring shrouding breaking down over time, to ECMs/ECUs failing without necessarily any good reason to. As there are too many faults on that particular vehicle to mention, it won't be easy to diagnose this one over the internet. You will likely require an auto electrician, and perhaps not even just one workshop to manage all types of issues. My best advice once you've dealt with this one and the vehicle is working is to sell it. You won't stop working on expensive issues with this mark and model.

Is there a timing belt and water pump service for the 2007 ml 350 at 100,000 miles


No the ML 350 uses a timing chain and the water pump is external on the front side of the engine. No timing belts to worry about on those engines.
