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?

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
