2012 C250 no start no click - dealer needs more history to help diagnose
The car has 110k miles and no issues except the coolant return line replaced as in my previous post. All maintenance are according to the manual. The fluids are regularly checked.
The other night I went to a store and parked the car for 20 minutes, when I returned the car failed to start. Only one click for like one second when I turned the key, no sound no turn over. Tried many times still the same - no sound. Instrument panel lit okay, lights work. Battery was 3 years old. Tried to jump start with another car, same. The fuses under the hood were all tested okay.
The next morning it got towed to dealer, the tow truck driver tried to start several times only one tiny click.
It has been at dealer for 3 days, no report yet and the service advisor asked for history but no diagnostic results.
What could be wrong? I suspect a failed starter but dealer would have got that by now if thatís the case.
