Question problem with starting, please help :(

g'day all ive had my 1996 mercedes e320 sedan for a while now nothing really gone wrong until today so anyways i took it for a drive around 2 pm and it was all starting fine and running fine etc then early this evening at around 5 pm i gave it a wash then after realized it would not unlock with the remote on my keys and then when i got into car from passenger it would start and idle well for about 2 seconds then turn off and 'Battery Charge' appears in red on dash lighting also red and green LED's flash alternatively after the car dies. this has happened every single time i have tried to start the car and i am really puzzled im not sure why this is doing it as it just randomly happened.
