99 Taurus Wagon 165K miles. Starter tries but almost like a week battery.
Jumped it first to see if will start but behaves the same - just kinda
clicks. Relay is ok. There is power to starter. Connections are tight.
Feels like starter is locked up when trying to start.
Am thinking starter is probably bad. Removed it last night and plan to
have it tested.
Not a mercedes question?
Probably the starter though... Check to make sure oil isn't leaking
onto it also...
PS If it seems to bench test OK, recheck the connections and have the
battery load tested.
I had a similar problem on my GMC 454 1 ton truck.....Turned out to be a bad
battery ( Totally dead )...Jumping and the normal tricks would not start it.
Trying another battery first would be my recommendation.
