I own a Mercedes Benz C320 and lately I've been experiencing some problems, few weeks ago, my car wouldn't start all of a sudden. I jump started and I noticed 2 faults.. esp warning light and light sensor, for some reasons something was draining my battery, I went and purchased a brand new battery and 2 days later it did the same thing again, I was told that it was a seat sensor that caused it, S O we unplugged the seats, everyting seamed fine for like 4 to 5 days, while I was driving, the car just came to a complete stop would not move, the engine light came on, I've come to realize that I'm not the only one with this problem, I hope the government would do the right thing by recalling those vehicles.

On my Mercedes Benz C320, if the car is not started at least every 12 hours, the car will not start and it needs a jump. The car is a 2002 and has 51K miles.

I have a 2002 Mercedes C320 and the car's battery keep dying and I have to jump start my car every day. Battery was replaced and same problem happens again and again. I went online and found out that I am not the only person who has the problem. It happens to many many many people - see attached link www.benzworld.org/forums/W203-C-class/1196568-Mercedes-C320-battery-drain-4.html I have paid the dealer $375 just for the diagnoses with nothing fixed and according to these complaints, even after they have the recommended replacement, the problem persists. It seems like they should have all these cars recalled and have the problem fixed when it's their production/component problem.
