Angry Sprinter Start error

Hi, I have a 2001 Sprinter 211 van, for a while it has been funny starting like the battery has gone flat but then would start a few times later. However the last time it has gone completley, jump startted it, turned it off, put a new battery on it and all it says now is START ERROR, The ignition lights come on but not turning the engine over, no even a click. Please help.

My ML 320 recently gave a start error. The short version is that my key has gone bad. After a few tries resulting in start error, it quit cranking at all. I pulled the positive battery cable for 1 minute, reinstalled it and then used my wifes key, and it started fine.
the dealer tried to reprogram the key but said it was shot...and new ones are $300.00.
Good luck.
