Today i tried to start my 2011 c300. When i put the key in the headlights came on and the dash lights also. However when i turned the key to the right, i got nothing. No crank, nothing. I dont know any info on current battery as i bought the car used (50k miles). If I guess I would say, the battery has been replaced in 2016. Does this sound like a simple battery issue? Or would the headlights and dash lights not come on if it were the battery? I didnt try anything else as i have another car and was leaving for work.

Sounds suspiciously like a Crank Position Sensor - Common failing.

You rally need the car scanned.

Hopefully just the battery or something else simple! (Welcome).

Since both the headlights and interior lights came on, I'm also not totally convinced this is a battery issue. Probably the easiest thing would be to test the battery to know for sure and then go from there.
