hello everyone... im new in here so if im askin silly questions dont shoot me yet
ive got n reg 1996 c220 diesel in manual...
parked it fine few nights ago went home went to bed...
got up in the morning- trid to go shoppin- car wouldnt start...
what is strange- the clock on my dashboard reset itself...
tried to jump start it rollin it off the hill... didnt work...
tried to jump leads started- it did but i switched it off n the problems came back...
every time i turn the ignition on after taking the key out the clock resets itself and battery is dying right in front of my eyes when i try to crank it...
whats wrong with it??? i read som info- cranshaft position sensor or K40 relay... these are thw most probable ones

Sounds like an electrical issue that points straight at the battery, if voltage is too low it won't start even from a hill, once you jump it there is enough to keep it running. If I had to guess it would be a shorted cell in the battery. Replace that dog and you'll be good to go.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
