Question about Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Parts & Accessories

1 Answer

2006 Mercedes-Benz C230, the starter turns very slowly.

When I turn the key to start, the starter turns the engine very, very slowly. It is turning, but not at the rate to start it. The battery voltage is at 12.8 volts.

yes the battery is probably five years old and not capable of holding a charge. if you go to a Murray's or autozone they will test the battery for free.

M 2007 mercedes c230 will sometimes not start. When I turn the key it sticks in that position and trys to start but doesn't and I must turn the key off to make it stop. If I let it sit it will start...


Likely a bad ignition tumbler, considering the key "sticking" in the start position.

Best bet is to hit the dealer and ask one of their service advisors if they've run into this problem before.

I have a mercedes c230 kompressor that will not start, key will not turn, could it be the battery


If the key will not turn, the interlock mechanism is stopping it. Try to jiggle the transmission shifter (in Park) to see if that is keeping the key from turning. You can also try it in neutral.

C230 Key Won`t Turn the car only went i use 14.3V


The starter is turning only when the solenoid close the contact to deliver the current to the starter . When this happens it then turns the bendix to engage with the flying wheel to start the engine.
The reason that you need higher voltage to have correct needed current going through the contact of the solenoid, hence the starter. The contact is corroded or rusty due to high spark at high current at every start time causing high resistance. V=IR the R resistance of the contact now is high so it need higher voltage (14.3 vs, 12.8 V) to deliver the same needed current for the starter.
Unfortunately, the solenoid is integrated with the starter, so you can not just replace the solenoid without replacing the starter.
If you can find the new battery holding at 14.3 V as you mentioned, then that is an economical solution since replacing the starter is costing more.
BTW where can I find the battery at 14.3V in case my friend's car has a same problem?
