Hi everyone, I’m new to this so be gentle 😀
I was driving my sons c180 2006 w203 when it just cut out and stopped, lights come on but engine not turning over
couple of display messages come up - display malfunction visit workshop, ESP inoperative see owners manual and water level warning
when ignition is turned on the fan races and the water level light will turn to red and says stop engine (even though the engine is cold)

any help would by much appreciated

thanks

Welcome aboard my suggestion is you give him back his C class and carry on using your E, have you opened the bonnet and checked anything,suggest you see if the engine has any oil in it for a start come back on here when you have done that.

Hi, thanks for your quick replies,
battery connections are all good, engine has oil and all fluid levels are correct
