Angry 99 SLK 230 will not crank

And so much for a good start to 2013. 99 SLK 230 (105k) hinted a trouble by sporadic "no crank" situations. Following the postings of the forum have done the following:
Changed battery (old one had 2 dead cells);
Removed, inspected and re-soldered K40 relay;
Had the key/fob (transmitter) checked at MB dealer;
removed and tested the starter/solenoid....checked good.
Replaced K40 relay with brand new OEM from MB dealer ($149.00);
....and you guessed it.....still will not crank.
Called MB Roadside Assistance and towed (flat bed) vehicle to MB dealer in Dallas....on Friday.....still waiting to hear from them....while "patiently" gathering all the $$$$ for what should be a "nasty" bill. Did I miss anything here?

Welcome from New Hampshire, does it crank with no start? Or just not cranking? If it's not starting it may be the cps. Are there any codes?
