2001 s430 will not turn over

Asked by Mar 03, 2017 at 07:15 PM about the 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S 430

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 s430 air ride suspension
pump went out so I ordered another
pump.  The car sat for about 2 weeks
until I got the replacement pump now
the car won't turn over.  The lights in the
dash turn on the radio windows Doors
unlock n lock but just doesn't turn over.   
Has this happened to anybody else??  
Any info would be gladly appreciated!  
Thanks

Sounds like the battery is low, battery may be getting weak or there is a parasitic draw on the battery. Have to charge up the battery and have it checked.

Thanks Rowefast for your input.. But I already replaced the car battery and I'm still in the same situation. Is there anything else I might be missing? Thanks again Rowefast

Well, if this is a standard or even a automatic move the gear shifter around, the neutral safety switch may not be set in the right place.

Just tried that just now and nothing like I said I get all the lights on the dash and radio works and Windows it just won't turn over. Like the key is not communicating with the ecm

All I got for you is the normal tracing of the small power wire from the starter solenoid, seeing if there is power there when someone is turning the key to see if power is there or not. Then tracing on back until you find it. sorry.

This same thing happened to me I replace the ECM the EIS and the key from same junk car. Started right up

hi Hoser80...did you figure out what went wrong with your car after changing the air suspension pump..im having same issues with my 2015 s550
