A140 2003 Engine Not Starting from Cold
I have a Mercedes A140 and have had it approx 1 month. When trying to start the car from cold, the only light showing on the dashboard is SRS. Try to turn the key and nothing.
Wait a couple of minutes and try again, sometimes it will start other times you have to try the same procedure 4 or 5 times before all the lights will come on the dash and you know you are ready for take off.
Does this sound like an ECU issue or is it a more technical electrical issue.
When buying from the garage the salesperson said that you had to press the clutch before starting, it was a safety feature (i reckon this is a load of baloney myself).
Also the car has 3 months warranty, so if its going to be expensive then would like to get it sorted under warranty before it expires.
Any help gratefully received.
