Hi,
anu suggestions appreciated.When my SLK was turned on, many warning lights came on but it started. My partner turned it off then a couple of minutes later, tried again and it was completely dead. The battery is fine. It's stuck in "park" in an awkward position from which it would be very difficult to extract it to take it to a Mercedes garage for diagnostics.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what's wrong and how to fix it?

I think it needs to be in park in order to start.
Make sure it is properly in park.

@Dave2302 might have suggestions if you wish to move it whilst stuck in park.
