Car wont start

Asked by Feb 28, 2016 at 12:13 AM about the 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 320 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I bought the car the owner said a chip was
bad but they did not know which chip. When you
go to start the car it doesn't make a sound. Also
they said the battery is new and the car can be
jump started sometimes and not others. All the
lights work and the key can lock the doors but no
cranking when trying to start. Anyone know why?

Weak battery, ignition switch issue, etc. Hard to know from where we sit. Just a little surprised you bought a car Mercedes that you couldn't drive and had issues with. Expensive to repair.
