Car batteries don’t always give warning signs before they fail, which is why it’s better to be proactive than to find yourself stuck. If you’re inspecting the battery yourself, make sure that the connections are clean, tight, and corrosion-free.
If your Mercedes-Benz won’t start, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to replace the battery, you may just need to jump start you’re car.
How to Jump Start a Car
Grab the jumper cables and follow the instructions below.
- Find a vehicle to help you with the jump
- Make sure that both cars are in “park” or “neutral” with their ignitions shut off and emergency brakes on
- Remove the caps from each vehicle’s battery and connect the cables
- Attach one of the red clips to the positive terminal on your battery and attach the other red clip to the positive terminal on the other vehicle’s battery
- Attach one of the black clips to the negative terminal on the other car’s battery and attach the other black clip to an unpainted, metal surface on your car – make sure that it isn’t near the carburetor or the battery
- Try starting your vehicle
- If your vehicle starts, thank the person for helping you and hit the road!
If the car still won’t start after jumping, then it’s probably time for a Mercedes-Benz battery replacement. If that’s the case visit our Mercedes-Benz service center in Riverside! We’re open six days and week and offer convenient hours.
How Long do Mercedes-Benz Batteries Last?
The average lifespan of a car battery is around three years, and while your Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicle is engineered with the highest-quality components, multiple factors can affect your car battery’s life such as old age, extreme temperatures, and corrosion. If you’ve noticed dim headlights, needed more jumpstarts than usual, or are simply concerned about your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s battery, be sure to visit our state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz service center in Riverside for assistance!
Where is the Battery in a Mercedes-Benz?
On many Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the battery is generally located either under the hood or in the trunk, however, the location differs in some models. For example, the car battery can be found under the rear seat in the W210, under the front passenger seat on the W164/166/151, and under a cover in the floorboard behind the center console in the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen (W461/463).
Do Mercedes-Benz Cars Have Two Batteries?
It may be surprising but some Mercedes-Benz vehicles actually have two batteries–a main starter battery under the hood that can be replaced or used to jump your ride and a secondary smaller one located in the trunk. Wondering why Mercedes-Benz vehicles sometimes have two batteries? These luxury vehicles consume a decent amount of electricity and require a more sophisticated set-up to deliver the power and performance you expect from this luxury brand.
