Can’t start your Mercedes-Benz GLK because of a dead battery? Learn how to fix the problem by jump-starting the battery of your Mercedes-Benz. This guide is a step-by-step procedure on jump-starting a Mercedes Benz GLK-Class with a dead battery.
Do not connect the jump box or jumper cables directly to the battery.
What you will need
- 12V Jump Starter
- Jumper Cables – Requires a running car
- Remove the metal key from your Mercedes-Benz key fob and use the metal key to unlock the driver’s door manually.
- Open the hood. Pull the hood release under the dashboard. Go to the front of the vehicle. Then unlock the hood latch and pull up the hood.
- Locate the battery’s terminals on the engine bay’s passenger side. Notice a RED plastic cover with the + symbol on top of the positive terminal.
- Slide the red plastic cover and connect the red (positive) jumper cable to the positive terminal.
- Connect the black (negative) jumper cable to the ground or negative terminal on the vehicle frame.
- Connect the jumper cables to the Jumpstarter or the battery of another vehicle. Make sure you put the red cable to the positive terminal and the black cable to the negative terminal.
- Get inside the car and turn on the ignition, not the engine. This will allow modules to power up. Wait 10 seconds, then try to start the engine.
Car Won’t Jump Start
If all you hear is a click, check the jump starter clamps are making good contact. Ensure the jump box is fully charged. The battery in the car may be completely discharged. Keep the jumper cables connected for at least 15 minutes, then try again.
