My 1994 Mercedes Benz SL500 will not start. It has less than 35000 original miles, new battery, and new fuses. I have disconnected the battery to reset the anti theft device. I have made sure all doors, trunk and hood and gas cap are closed properly. Then I locked the car, waited a couple minutes and unlocked the car. All lights on dash come on but car won't turn over.

The security light is not on and does not flash. I have a multimeter that I used to check fuses prior to replacing them.

I don't know. It started yesterday and now it won't. A local Mercedes Benz mechanic told me that it was a bad fuse. I don't know where the fuse is located that controls the ignition.

Just making a suggestion. Try to start the car in neutral!
