Question about 2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Several possibilities for the short crank time on initial start up. The battery was a good place to start. Yes there is a back up battery on this vehicle but its solely for the braking system. It will play no part in the starting characteristics of the vehicle. It's location is in the engine compartment underneath the a/c cabin filter by the right hood hinge (passenger side). The battery, remote key, tip start relay can all play a factor in this condition. If you have second key I would try that one for awhile and see what happens. It would be impossible to say exact problem with out looking at the car. Can only give most likely cause. Last time I ran into this problem replacing the battery did the trick. The main battery is located in the trunk under the carpet. Guessing that is the one you replaced.
