Let's test the battery. Turn on yout headlights ant try to crank engine.
If the headlights dim, the battery is dead. If the headlightd go out you have a bag connection.
Now if the battery is dead we need to start it to ck the charging ststem.
If the indicarion is a bad connection then the battery cables beed removing clean and tight reinstsllation( special attento both ends of boyj cables.
To ck altrnator engine must be running and uou need a 10 dollar multimer from a parts stor and then get back to me K?

Your radio/nav system needs a code. Go the your dealer's parts department , give them the VIN of your car( should be free $0). Punch in the code through the car radio and your radio/nav system should work right away.

I know on the L.H. (previous fuel injection system) models there was a module called a base module that worked as a big overvoltage relay and powered up all the control units for the engine and drivetrain,they had 4 to 6 10amp. fuses in the top and theywould blow fuses and sometimes fail themselves causing no start conditions. I beleive yours is an H.F.M. system. I used to do roadside and i'm also a mercedes benz tech. The first thing I would try would be to put the car in nuetral and see if it starts. the nuetral safety switches of that era are problomatic. next I would check my brake light fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. That fuse also powers the starter relay-even though it doesn't state that on the fuse schematic. Also to answer your question about a lockout relay-yes there is but they rarely cause a problem. I hope I have been helpful
