Hi there, 

Right now I have a 2007 R320 CDI that has a bad auxiliary battery. It starts right up and works perfectly. Except it shows the battery sign because the auxialry battery does not take a charge. All the accessories work just fine. 

I am saying these because you mentioned that the car does not start. A bad aux battery will not prevent the car from starting. 

Regarding the connector, I am not sure which one it is or where it goes. I will be trying to charge the old aux battery this week. When I do that I can take a picture for you.

Does the ignition turn? All dash lights on? Do you hear a click? Nothing at all? 

Test the relay, swap it or at least test it.

Are there any other codes?
