Found it. Despite Mercedes telling me not starter (solenoid switch) finally found it myself. Checked voltage to switch when happening and was 12.8 volts, coming out 0. Mercedes suggested was my key, replaced then ignition switch (held off) and if not then could be a number of other things. It was starter!!! Thanks, hope this helps others
