I have a quick question for you. I have a 2004 SLK 230 Kompressor that I have had for the past 11 years. I drive this car locally and it has very low miles (9000). Crazy.
A few weeks ago, I went to start the car and the battery was dead. No surprise as I have not driven the car in two months+. I went to the local MB dealership and purchased a new battery. Installed and everything working fine that day.
I went to drive it yesterday and it would not start. I noticed CODE on the radio then realized that this is more than likely a just entering the CODE and it will start. I ended the code and it started right up.
I drove about 10 minutes to a location and had lunch. Went to leave from lunch and the car would not start. When I turn the key all the way to the right,...not any noise. Like the car was Immobilized. Hmmmm. While I sat there for 30 minutes trying to figure this out, I noticed that it was VERY difficult to put the car in neutral too. After another 30 minutes of scratching my head, I figured I would give it one more try and it started right up. Hmmmm.
What possibly could be going on here? Did the computer need to reset after I entered the CODE? Is there something else I was supposed to do after I put in a new battery? Was there some sort of steps I was supposed to follow once the new battery was installed?
Looking forward to your comments. I have really enjoyed reading this forum as of late. Have a great Sunday everyone. Oh yeah,......Go Panthers !!!
