2005 Mercedes-Benz ML350 QuestionsMy ML350 won't start. I have to jump the battery. Is alt or battery bad? (3 answers)
After an accident, we left the blinkers on and I believe we drained the battery. It was jumped by roadside assistance, started, but 3 days later it wouldn't start anymore without a jump.
