Check for a main blown fuse like a ignition fuse or other main fuse.


Will check that Thank you!!!


When you change a Battery, You need to reset certain features in the car. I am not sure of what exactly need to be reset. Please take it a local mechanic (like Tiresplus or something similar) who can work on Mercedes Benz. They will reset.
