Wonder if anyone has any other ideas
Tried to start my ML500 tonight to go and pickup kids from school
Hasnt been used since Friday and was working fine
Tried to jump start from my neighbours small toyota but although bringing up dashboard lights and headlamps still wouldnt crank over.
Put Battery on charger for 4 hours but still only reading 12.68v
New Battery required or could it be something else
When opening up the car absolutely nothing ie No interior lights coming on
Thanks in advance
Cant believe it as it was hooked up to Star unit on Thursday to check out SRS fault and nothing else reported
Thanks in advance

Something's draining the battery on my 300CE-24 and, after more than 3 to 4 weeks it gets jump started by a 1988 Renault 5.

So there!
