I have a 2003 C230 coupe for about a month. It runs fine, no problem at all. Today when I was backing up in a parking lot, the engine stall, some people helped me to push the car back. After that, I couldn't start the engine. I left my car in that supermarket for more than 3 hours and went back to try again. The car didn't start. Can someone tell me how to start the car? I live in College Station , TX and there is no Mercedes dealer around. I need to drive the car back to Houston and have it checked by a mechanic. Right now just want to start the engine. Can someone help? Thanks a LOT!!!

well if the car wont start, something is wrong. fuel pump took a crap, or faulty crank sensor.

This sounds dumb, but the same thing happend to my 03 wagon. I was out of gas. When I put 5 gal from a gas can in, it still wouldn't start. Then I got mad as hell and jumped up and down in the hatch area. It then started. I was so happy I didn't have to call roadside. They know me by first name since we work close to eachother.

Is it stick?
If so, try pushing it to a place where there is a lot of free space around. Make sure someone is helping you push the car. Engage 1st gear and hold clutch. Then once the car is moving more or less let go of the clutch. The engine will crank by itself. If it's auto it won't work

Here is the question that can help us help you a little better. Does it crank over? If not, when you turn the key on, do the lights in the cluster come on?
