Bought a used Mercedes 89 560 SEL and don't know how to start it. It doesn't crank.
The car was delivered by the seller's nephew and parked in my carport. When I turn the
key it buzzes, but does not crank. When I turn the wheel it comes out of a locked position.
I have tried pushing the key in, turning the key around, turning the wheel and turning the
key. Taking it out of park then putting it back into park. Keeping foot on brake, turning key
with foot off brake. Nothing works.
First thing is to check the battery. What is the voltage? Has it been is storage? Your might think about replacing the fuel and oil as well if it was.
Yes, it's been idle for some time, but was driven to my house. The battery gauge doesn't show any movement, but the doors lock and the seat moves with power. I'll call road service. Thanks
Is there any kind of fob on the keys? It sounds like there may be an aftermarket immobiliser fitted.
