I am new to the group. and this is my first posting. I have a 2008 slk 280. Lately I have been having trouble with the starting procedure. I step on the brake and turn the ignition switch and nothing happens. I have to go though this procedure 4-5 times before it makes a connection. Any suggestions????

I would check the battery integrity first (as Banks suggested). Is this the OEM battery from 2008?
