I no got the power captain

Hi guys (I have a 2001 200 SLK)

Recently I left the interior light on which drained the battery.

After a jump start the engine management light has been on ever since.

Shortly after that I noticed that the car has greatly reduced power, like the kompressor is not working.

I'm not sure if the 2 scenarios are related or just circumstantial, but any advice on how to bring my mobil back to life would be greatly appreciated,

Many thanks

Check under hood fuses would be my first check. Sounds like the fuse for the supercharger clutch might be burnt or k40 finally melted on you to cause loss of power. Plenty of stickies of that problem! See if a local import shop will read your codes or find a friend with code reader to be sure of where your problem lays.
Good luck!
