No Start 1997 320SL

1997 320 SL. The shop drove the vehicle in and changed the oil on a Friday. The car started and ran fine. They kept the vehicle over the weekend to do an alignment on Monday morning.

When they tried to start the vehicle on Monday morning it would not turn over. The Key Fob operates the door lock with no problem; The lights come on and are bright; The horn works.

It is almost like it is in some form of a “safe” mode that will not let the starter turn over. Any ideas?

Seeing as they are a shop, did they check to see if the starter is getting any power?
