Hello, I’m new here and I was wondering if you guys could help me out.
Mercedes 91 560SEL..
Car has 40,500 original miles on it.....
When I turn the key to start it, it starts but dies in like a
millisecond. I have to start it again and it works fine. This happens
when the car has been off for more than a few hours. You have to start
it twice, I don’t know why. If I turn it off, come back in 30 minutes,
it’ll start fine with 1 turn. The problem is when it sits for a long
No lights on the cluster, car has no problems, just this that’s been
going on for a long time.
I have to hold the key for a few longer seconds for the second
ignition to kick in and it works. Pattern is like this:
SOUND OF STARTING: DIES: SOUND OF STARTING: STARTS
I just changed the fuel accumulator thinking that would be the
problem, however it did nothing.
ANY ideas? Please help, I need to fix this!!
