Hi I'm Leslie I have just registered with SLK world. I have a 2001 slk 230 Kompressor. I'm from Northern Ireland. In the winter they put salt on our roads to melt the frost so you can imagine what that has done to my bodywork. I have started a complete restoration job. All lights bumpers etc removed. The car has always started first time even though it is all striped out. Yesterday I went out to do some work on her I wanted to tidy up the garage and brush floor first so I put the wheels back on and let her off the jacks. It's been a couple of month from I started her so I was not sure if she would start and guess what she was dead. Normally I would use my trickle charger but my son had borrowed it so I put the jump leads from my Ford Kuga on to her left for 5 mins tried to start but just clicking gave it another 5 and still clicking so gave it another 20 mins this time it fired up but only for a few seconds. Now it just cranks and cranks but will not start. Went to my sons house and got my charger attached my voltage protector and then the charger left it on low over night battery now fully charged and still won't start this is very unusual as it normally starts first time. Can somebody help as I'm more into body and paintwork than mechanical and electrical problems.
