Maybe your battery is dead. You can get a new battery. The replacement drill batteries for Black and decker are cheaper. You can go to get one at Replacement for Black Decker Cordless Drill Battery

This is just generic instructions just to give you an idea of placement and mounting. I am not sure if your vise turns or not and that would be a big factor also. It depends on where you want it, if anything is close that will interfere with the vise or whatever you have in the vise. Depends how thick the spot is where you want to mount it. If the place is not very thick, use bolt and heavy washer on top of the vise and a heavy washer, a lock washer and nut on bottom. In place of the lock washer and nut, you could use locknut. If the bench where you want to mount is too thick for bolts, use at least 2" lag bolts with heavy washers with the lag bolts as big as the vise holes will accept. You will need the vise as close to the edge without it hanging over the edge of the bench. This is so you will be able to open and close the vise without obstruction. If placement of the vise isn't a big deal, the center edge of the bench would be great although I always mount mine on one end of the bench because of better movement of the part in the vise. Goodluck.

Unfortunately you need an expensive scan tool that can read all the other individual modules of a car. The Mercedes Benz cars have many of these and without information, it is very hard to work on.
It sounds like a body module is acting up.

Sounds like the slider switch didn't get back into it's socket properly, take it back apart and look at that.

If the battery has been used a lot or has not been kept charged up it likely is shot. A battery that is not used a lot should be kept charged. I keep my battery operated drill on the charger almost all the time. I have two and change them once every two weeks. Several years old and they both work good.

If it pops and flames shoot out it is NOT safe to use. You could have a big fire on your hands.
