My E320 CDI had , about 6 months ago, a new ignition switch fitted (3 months after purchase!) It had to be lift-towed in. Prior to that, a new battery was fitted . Now, I am having problems with starting.
Not all of the time, but every now and then sometimes it will take 7 or 8 attempts to get the engine turning. When turning the key, it "Clunks" as though I had a flat battery (I do not), remove they and try again and again, and Hey Presto, it spins the engine and all is good.
I am reluctant to take it to the local MB dealer again as he charges like a wounded bull!
