Electrical problem
1993 Mercedes Benz 500sl V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 149000 miles

Parked car and next day wouldnt' start. Bought a new battery, but did not solve problem. Check all fuses and they are O.K. Can I get some help. (It seems to be something simple, but I am lost). Carlos.

Hi
When you say won't start do you mean it 's not cranking or it cranks but won't run?

Do not crank or anything. All ligths show in dashboard.

There are several possibilities Ignition switch, starter lockout relay, starter solenoid/motor and shift lockout switch. So to find out need to place a volt meter or test light on the starter solenoid ignition terminal turn key to see if voltage is present. Also place shifter in neutral try and start.
Let me know
