no fuse on the starter- that electric motor requires a direct line from the battery- 2 things- one: if your battery is dead, replace the battery- two: using jumper cables is dangerous- to your health and to the electronics in your car- that is a nice Benz- find a good MB mechanic-

Like jamn mentioned the battery is probably too far gone to keep up with all the electronics on your vehicle. time for new one. Have it tested to verify.

first of all I had the same problem with my s430 on the right side of the front passenger seat. right under the carpet should be a place for you to jump your car. the thick red wire on the left side runs directly to your battery which is positive. if you hook the positive to the thinner cable which is right next to the thicker cable that's the one to jump your car.. then you plug the ground wirw right above the cable there shoud be a piece of metal that sticks right out that's where the ground should be hooked on too.. your car should jump then. hope you find this info helpful
