Need help with V12 not starting
Hey guys,
Just out of the blue my 92 600SEL refuses to start. The engine cranks but it doesn't fire when I try to start it. The Palm scanner didn't reveal any useful codes and gave me some with "no descriptions". Any ideas what to look for and where to start troubleshooting? Thanks for your help in advance.

If you want to diagnose it yourself, you need to figure out if it's not getting either fuel or spark, then go from there. What are the numbers for the trouble codes, we might be able to retrieve some descriptions for you.
