Sounds to be a loose or corroded wire/s at either starter motor or at battery fusible links.
Also check the earth strap (Cable) between engine and bodywork.
Hope this helps, MMP

Why wont my 2000 s430 crank over sedan

Several reasons, some of which I have to guess at as you don\'t give manual or auto.

In auto it could be the lockout switch that stops you starting other than in P or N going \'open\' so it thinks it is in gear, same thing happened to my Mercedes A170 CDI. This can be either in the gearbox or the selector lever depending on the car and model.

Generally speaking; Connection to the starter from battery or starter motor, Check both by running a jump lead from battery to main input to starter (connection from starter solenoid to starter) and see if it cranks but take care of moving parts if it does, there will be a spark.

Problems with ignotion lock, if you swing a bunck of keys on the lock you WILL mess up the barrel internal connection. If the dash lights go out when yuo crank the probably battery, any battery over 4 years old is suspect do not use a jump but a new battery to test, (borrow one and SWAP over, do NOT use leads.

Mercedes C220 CDI 2003 doesn't start. Sometimes, it's rare but it happens, I try to start the engine, and it grinds, but does not starting. I've tried to take off the key, wait for a while and try again,...

hi Dime !from my experience as a mechanic,if a motor does that it may be the starter that is going to need service ,because its going to die in your hands in the wrong time and the wrong place.

1994 mercedes benz c220: no crank, no turn, no start, no nothing

Battery should be in the trunk, under the mat next to spare tire on the right side. The starter is in the engine compartment on the underside near the firewall (very close to the accelerator pedal, think: if you could put your foot through the floor with the accelerator while sitting in the driver's seat, you would end up kicking the starter). Not fun to get at from under the car! (which is the only way to get to it :(
