Engine not cranking..!

SLK 200 European 136 HP from 1998
Engine not cranking..!
Key on “1”: SRS light is turning on for three seconds and turning off...
Key on “2”: All lights on, not the SRS light...
Trying to turn on: Not a click... Fulll silence only the radiator fan is turning full speed...
What might be the problem and of course the solution..?

Hello, from what I have read on some SLK Forums (this one included) it sounds like the `K40` relay is your problem, do a search on here, should give you some useful info.

Hope this helps, regards Damian.

I would start with the battery, have it checked first and see if its still good, then check battery terminals make sure they are clean and tight.

Battery is OK... The K40 relay seems OK and 15A fuses look normal...
Just two questions:
- The 40A fuse of the K40 relay... Is this shape is correct..? Or blown up..?
- Or the one circled in red on the K40 is it defective..?
If everything OK on this front what to look next..?

Make sure it's in PARK. There's a "starter lockout switch" but I'm not sure where it is on your model, which is how the car knows your car isn't in Park to start it.

Yesterday evening cleaned the K40 relay and the connections with electronic cleaning spray... Recentered the coil of the transponder... Tried the car with the spare key... Result: WROOOOM...
Tried to move the car this morning...
A big “thump" and the transmission went into “limp mode”...
Took the car to an independent MB service...
Left engine mounting bloc was defective... Changed both...
Back home: WROOOOM and WROOOOM...
Life is beuatiful and even better with SLK...
Work: two hours... Cost: 303,- US dollars parts included...
