May be fuel related or ignition related:

Fuel: Obtain a can of "starting fluid" from an auto supply store. Spray directly into air intakevehicle has fuel turns over but will not start - 2.gif for two seconds. If car "kicks" and trieds to start, then the problem is fuel-related. If you spray more, then it may start.
Could be: Fuel filter or fuel pump2.gif.

Ignition: Remove a sparkplug cable and lay it down on a metal part of the engine. Have someone crank the starter while you look for a spark from the cable end to the engine. If no spark, it could be several things:
distributor rotor, distributor cracked and/or wet on the inside, ignition coil.

2004 E Class Mercedes will sometimes start and go for days and then suddenly acts like it will turn over but, does not start. What's wrong?


When you have the no start you need to make sure the fuel pump is energizing and that you have fuel in the fuel rail with pressure. You may be having the beginning of a bad fuel pump ready to go south. Second option would to be sure when turning to start the vehicle that you have power to the ignition coil. You need gas and electric spark to start any vehicle. Without either, the vehicle will just crank.

Hard starting


Do you hear the fuel pump momentarily when you turn the key from LOCK to ON? If not, continue...
If not, check the INERTIA CUTOFF SWITCH (especially if the car has been bumped or in an accident), and reset as necessary.
Also, if you did not re-pressurize the fuel system when you first changed the fuel pump, do the following:
  1. Turn the key from OFF to on. Count to three.
  2. Turn the key back to OFF. Count to three.
  3. Do 1 and 2 above, again.
  4. Do 1 and 2 above, one more time.
  5. Try starting the vehicle.
If the vehicle starts, you're good.
If the vehicle did not start, check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail, and replace the fuel pressure regulator as necessary.

Ran out of diesel now vehicle won't start


This is not unusual on a diesel. What happens is there is air in the system. If this vehicle has an electric fuel pump loosen line where fuel enters injection pump then turn ignition key to the on position and watch for fuel to appear and then quickly tighten line before turning off key. Then try to start. If does not have electric fuel pump will need a second person. One will loosen line and watch while other cranks vehicle until you get fuel and tighten line before the other person releases ignition switch unless vehicle starts first. If that doesn't do the job do this where line hooks onto each injector. Probably will not have to do this to all injectors but could run rough until all the air gets out of everything. I have farmed with diesel tractor for 25 years and dad I drove the gm vehicles with the 5.7. You normally don't start a diesel without bleeding the air out of the lines although some will self bleed most won't. Hope this does the trick.

I have worked on a similar problem with one of these vans. You either have spark or fuel issues if the engine turns over. I would say jugging by that it will start after long cranks that it might be fuel related and you should have the vans fuel pressure checked to see if it is in range and not weak.If it is security related a light would flash for that.You can easily figure out if it is fuel related by spraying carb cleaner in the hose where the are filter is but be careful not to spray on the mass air flow sensor. I hope this points you in the right direction.

Check the fuel pressure regulator. You didn't say what engine you have. If you have the V-6 it is located on the front of the engine on the drivers side near where the throttle cable hooks up to the throttle body. It will have a rubber vacuum hose coming out of the top of it. pull of the hose. start the car. if you see fuel coming out than the regulator is bad.

The other possibility is the fuel pump check valve is bad and fuel pressure is dropping off and the fuel is boiling in the fuel rail. It will take longer to start because it needs to push the vapor out of the rail. Once it cools down the vapor condenses back to fuel and it starts right up.

Two things to try
1. when it doesn't start cylce the key four or five times. Which means turn the key to the on position (do not start the vehicle) wait 3-5 seconds and then turn the key off and repeat. The final time go ahead and start the vehicle. You should hear the fuel pump run every time you turn the key on. If the vehicle starts right up you definitely have a fuel issue.

2. When it doesn't start hold the gas pedal to the floor. Then start the vehicle being ready to let off the gas pedal if it starts. If it starts up and then runs a little rough and then clears up it is likely a fuel pressure regulator leaking.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

Ran out of gas. vehicle started, ran, drove home,


the fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON. It runs all the time whie cranking and after engine starts.

Spray some starting fluid into throttle body & see if it starts then. If yes, pump may be bad. Can you hear pump run in fuel tank?

Ran out of gas. vehicle started, ran, drove home, turned off, would not restart. Is there a ran out of fuel procedure/fuel pump reset. Does sound like fuel pump is working. Dirty/clogged fuel filter


No, there isn't a reset. When you run out of fuel, after refilling turn your key on without starting the vehicle. You should hear the fuel pump working for a couple seconds. After the pump stops then try to start the vehicle. Because you could hear the fuel pump working, it is possible that your fuel filter is dirty/clogged. I hope this helps.
