Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
no problem in waiting - thanks. We are desperate to find out any possible cause.
Any news yet ?
OK- no problem
The car is now registered in France and was on a personalised plate when we bought it in the UK - R7 CWL - the owner kept the plate and re-registered the car with the DVLA with a new registration of R531VHE.
The VIN is as follows : WDB1704472FO41081.
Since my original enquiry have tried several times to start the car but with no luck- all dash lights come on, a few whirring noises, but absolutely nothing else. Interestingly, my garage has phoned to tell me they have another client who has just reported exactly the same problem.
Hi again Mike
Have just been to try again - the whirring I mentioned, we think is the fan turning over. Interestingly the starter turned over for a fraction of a second , maybe a quarter of a turn, but not enough to start the car. Is this any further help to your diagnosis?
Did you get my last note re the whirring noise which I believe is the fan?
