Q: No Start only clicking, new battery

asked by on

I had this problem with my Mercedes 300D like a few weeks ago and i had the battery tested and it was dead, so I paid a lot to buy a new giant battery for my Mercedes and now its doing the same clicking noise and the battery light is on on the dash. What's going on

My car has 277994 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is a common sign of a faulty starter solenoid. The starter solenoid is located on the starter and has internal electrical contacts that transmit electricity to the starter. When this fails, it may cause a clicking sound and will not allow the starter to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your starter.
