Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Open Question

Have 2000 s500 Mercedes. It won't start and tends to be worse in cold weather. Key turns fine and light,radio etc come on but it doesn't turn over. Then out of no where it fires up randomly. Also when key is in on position it won't come out of park. Once started shifts into drive fine. Started fine until cold fronts? I've read it could be anything from fuse,eis,esm,starter,relay,ground???

SOURCE: I cannot shift from park on my 2000 S500 Mercedes

you need to have your car scanned for codes. in the mean time take a flat screwdriver and insert it in the slot on the shifter console and release the shift lock. this should allow you to manually shift the vehicle. Your owners manual should tell you about this feature.

Lights will turn on even on a weak battery. Take your battery to a parts dealer and let them test it for you. Recharge on a slow charge or replace.

It's not that unusual for a battery to fail that soon, and the "no lights, no nothing" says that it's the battery again. Your best bet at this point is to pull the battery and take it to the point of purchase for testing. They should either replace it under warranty or charge it for you. After you replace the battery you should have the charging/electrical system checked for possible shorts or power drains.

My 2000 S500 mercedes will not start. the key turns but the engine will not crank. it has a new battery


Does it click or do anything? If not, then the plastic gears inside the ignition that control the vehicles ACC and ON positions along with the cranking may have slipped. Have someone to pull the ignition switch panel and check and make sure the "gears" are working properly.

I have a 1996 Toyota Corolla that won't start


Radio and lights can work with weak battery, too weak to turn starter.

Noise when shutting off maybe dieseling due to fuel mixture too rich or timing off.

When you say car won't start do you mean starter turns but engine does not start, or do you mean starter does not turn.
