CLK 320 New Owner Need to trouble shoot battery drain
Hi all, new to the site and first time MB owner and Ex-Caddy owner.
I purchased my 99 CLK 320 with 68K mile on it, I flew to Miami to pick it up and drove it 1400 miles back to Michigan with one problem. As soon I fueled up in Michigan the battery died in just few minutes.
I was able to jump it and get it home, overnight I put the charge on it and the battery did not hold the charge, had to jump it with the battery charger.
Questions? Could this just be a battery issue? I did not have any of the issues during fueling on the way home, I stopped and turned the car off 6 times with no issues.
Anything to keep in mind while owning this car?
