That is quite a car! Remove the negative terminal from the battery and allow to sit for about a minute. Is the battery in good condition even after sitting? You may "consider" replacing if there is even a glitch. This should reset the system. Let me know what you see.

    I really hope so. It doesn't make sense that just because it sat for a spell that the whole thing fails. These are controlled electronically and quite good transmissions. Give it a shot and let me know. I love those 600's. Nothing beats a smooth V12.

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

ignition switch contact or starter motor given up the ghost ,try a jump start and see if that works ,do the lights go dim when you try to start it??if so then its a flat battery or a old battery thats just died on you.These vehicles do have a big ignition lock in the dash and these just dont go wrong like a VW but its possible?

I just buought a 98 Volvo S70 T5, the car sat for abit, to the point were It had to jump it. to start. ran great for the next 2 hours off and on mybe 7 diffrent starts but it never running for more then...


It could be a number of things:
  • Bad connection or corrosion on battery cables
  • Dead cell in the battery would prevent it from charging fully
  • Bad or worn drive belt would slip, preventing the alternator from fully charging the battery
  • Bad alternator
If the car will run at idle with all accessories turned on, the alternator is good and you should concentrate on the battery and battery cables. If the car won't idle, then the drive belt and/or alternator could be the issue. If the car starts everytime when it's cold and only gives you a problem starting when the engine is hot, the starter could be the issue. A bad starter will often work when it's cold (after sitting a few hours or overnight). When a bad starter gets hot, it takes more and more power to get it to turn over.
Overall, I'd have the electrical system checked out. Most chain auto parts stores (Autozone, Advance Auto) will do a complimentary electrical test for you.

if you are going to by a S 600 it's really good car as you know the life of car depend on how you treat it, if you maintain it the right way don't worry it's a really good one, when get old some electrical fault can occur it's normal for all the cars not only the S600, so it's really smooth and powerful car before you by it you must check is the previous owner has maintain it properly or not, that's the most important thing check the service history and repair history if the car have been maintain by Mercedes dealer it's be a good car, if you do right way if it's over half million mile not be a problem

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.
