B200 turbo. everything turns on EXCEPT the motor
I have a 2007 B200 turbo. In January, I got into the car one morning and turned the ignition. Everything came on except the engine. I figured it was just the cold weather. My second attempt was successful and off I went. By the beginning of March, this had become more common.
Now, the more I drive the car during the day, the more likely this problem is. I turn the ignition and everything turns on EXCEPT the engine. the lights on the dash, headlights, windows, etc. Everthing will work but the engine doesn't turn over. I'll sit and wait and after a few trys, the engine will start.
I've had a lot of problems with this car and doubt I will ever buy another Mercedes. I'm hesitant to bring it into the shop in case they tell me something that might not be true. In January, I had to bring the car in because the passenger door lock was making a machine gun noise. That cost me $500 to fix and then they said there was a problem with my brakes. Another 2k. 2 days after leaving the shop, the driver side door started making the same noise. Grrr.......
Any idea what this problem could be before I take it into the shop?
