Engine wont start or crank with ignition

  • 2006 MERCEDES BENZ C280
  • 50,000 MILES

While driving slow the engine just died, I saw the low level cooling indicator come on a few seconds before. The coolant level is fine. Now when I turn the ignition on the motor does not turn over, but the cooling fan comes on! This never happened before.
I have been usine the car with two warning lights that came on recently yhe first the SRS FAULT the ESP. I dont think this is the problem. When a engine diagnostic is fitted it just reads error in connection but we have tried with 3 different machines now. The ignition lights appear to be working normally. Any ides why it wont start

Do you
have the same problem?

An error in connection can mean a power supply is missing somewhere or there is a fault with the wiring or PCM. You need to find out why it is so which could be the reason why you are not able to start the engine.
