problem details
2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK350 35,500 mi,
Sometimes need to turn the key two or three times to start the car. The crank shaft sensor has been replaced and the problem still occurs. The car always starts by the third try. Mercedes dealer could not find any error codes and said until the car will not start at all they cannot fix the problem.
