2005 SL500 won't start.

Asked by Jun 11, 2017 at 10:57 PM about the 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL 500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 SL500. Engine light came on. Had to
drive into work. When I went to turn it on the engine
light came on again. Put the key in, tried to turn it
on and it won't start. Sounds like it want to turn
over. It revs up then it just won't start. No battery
indication..

Several possible problems: electric fuel pump, ignition are most logical. Check them first. Make sure fuel is getting to the engine and then continue with ignition check.

Thank you very much.
