Hi. 

My 2008 A170 wont start. It says SRS malfunction on display. Drive to nearest workshop but it won't start. Engine just makes a tick noise but no turnover whatsoever. I did check the battery which was replaced a few months ago and it says fully charged. Any idea as to what might be wrong?

I agree you need to try jump starting the car. It sounds like a weak battery.

If not the battery, then I would check the starter.

Not really keen on jump starting it. Heard that it might cause other issues. Gonna get a new test battery tomorrow and see if that sorts it out otherwise I'll have to get it towed to a dealer. Thanks for the advice

Airbag will not prevent the car from starting. Have you tried starting the car by connecting a 12 volt to the starter solenoind? There is a good chance your starer is bad.

The worst case would be a siezed engine. But let's hope that is not the case here.

Thank you all for the help and suggestions. Had my car fixed today. Turned out to be the main ignition relay that was broken. Replaced it and all is fine.
