1. Dead battery 2. CPS is bad and needs to be replaced 3. Bad starter motor

Hard to tell unless you can give more details, does it make a sound when you try and turn it over? A classic dead battery sound on Mercedes is a click noise when you try and start it, sometimes it confuses people and they think the starter motor is bad but that's not the case.

I had a similar problem and it turned out that the grounding strap on the starter motor just disintegrated.

For one it fits my 1999 ML320 SUV. So most of the 320's I suspect.

Make sure the vehicle is unlocked. There is a pin that comes down when the doors lock.

Lock up, No but a bad crank sensor will prevent the engine from starting.

Open the hood and reach under to where the headlights are located. Also remember to check the fuse box in case a fuse blew.

Either a leaking heater core or a plugged A/C evaporater drain. You can smell the fluid to determine what it is. A/C condensation smells like water/moldy water, coolant doesn't smell like water.

I do not know for sure, but i have a 1999 galant and we had to fix the transmission neutral switch on it. it was about $65 dollars and the car runs great now. I guess it is a common problem with these cars. hope this helps.

There is no dip stick in the ML for the transmission box - It has to be done by the Mercedes Dealer who has the required dip stick Hope this helps
