Well my uncle is having problems with his 98 or 97 (not sure) c230. He said it just won't start! He's replaced the battery and still nothing. I told him its probably the starter but I'm not sure. Any ideas? He said its been sitting there for awhile too.

Does it crank? if not check the fuses, and the connections to the starter motor, see if the starter motor is getting power at the connection. More obviously, check the battery was installed correctly.

If it does crank, check the fuel pump relay, and then the intake air temp sensor.

If possible have someone turn the key while you check for 12V at the small wire on the starter. If you get 12V at the starter and it doesn't crank its definitely the starter. If you get no power there then it has to be the ignition switch or the anti theft system. Good luck
