Is your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter not starting due to a dead battery? Learn how to fix the problem using a jump starter box to jump a Sprinter battery. This guide applies to Mercedes, Dodge, and Freightliner Sprinter vans.
What you will need
- Jump Starter Box
- Ensure the Sprinter transmission shifter is in Park position and Parking Brakes are engaged. Remove the key from the ignition.
- Pull the hood release under the dashboard of your Sprinter and open the hood.
- Locate the positive jump-starting terminal and connect the positive (red) jump-starter lead. You must twist and push the red cover to expose the terminal.
- Determine a ground connection and connect the negative (-) lead.
- Press unlock on your key to ensure the car is powered up and the alarm system is disabled. Go inside and start the car. If your Sprinter doesn’t start, only click check the jump starter clamps. Wiggle the clamps a little to ensure they are making good contact.
