If it's a battery problem, why not have it jump started or have a new one installed to fix the problem?

Your still going to need a new battery or a charge. All MB cars with automatics, up to approx 1990 or 91, can be push started.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
