HOW LONG DO MERCEDES CAR BATTERIES LAST?
While every car is slightly different, most batteries last for an average of three to four years. There are several factors that will help decide whether your battery lasts closer to three or four years. Your Mercedes battery life depends on the battery quality and how often you use your vehicle. If you have a newer Mercedes, the battery can often last five years at a minimum. However, it’s possible to go over five years without worrying about replacing it.
ARE THERE OTHER FACTORS THAT AFFECT MY BATTERY’S PERFORMANCE?
Along with vehicle usage and battery quality, you’ll consider several other factors that can impact your battery’s performance. Taking your car on short rides can put stress on the battery, and accidentally leaving your lights on can cause a power drain. If you use your electronics or lights without turning the car on, you’re putting stress on the battery. Extensive idling, a loose fastener, and not having your vehicle serviced regularly are also factors that will reduce your battery’s performance.

AUXILIARY BATTERY MALFUNCTION
Many Mercedes have the main battery and a backup battery known as the auxiliary battery. If it is the auxiliary battery that malfunctions, you’ll get an error message on your car’s dashboard. This will be a generic warning with a small battery symbol.
If it’s the voltage converter that fails, you’ll get an on-board computer error that flashes either “stop vehicle shift to P leave engine running,” or “auxiliary battery malfunction” that’ll stay on constantly. Your Mercedes will still turn on, and some functions will continue to work after you get these messages. It doesn’t impact your car’s mechanical features.
AUXILIARY BATTERY FUNCTION
Mercedes-Benz cars have two types of auxiliary batteries. Some have a smaller battery, but this comes fitted to the newer C class cars. This battery is responsible for running certain functions in your car like various radar, multimedia, PDC sensors, and the stop/start function. It’s not a good idea to drive if you know you need to replace your Mercedes backup battery. Instead, you should Contact Us promptly and schedule an appointment for your Mercedes battery replacement.
IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE WITH AUXILIARY BATTERY MALFUNCTION?
The short answer is yes and no. If you need a Mercedes auxiliary battery replacement, you should get it into a certified repair shop as soon as possible. However, it is generally safe to drive for up to 100 miles after the warning lights come on. Obviously, if your Mercedes secondary battery is dead, it’s a good idea to get it in as soon as possible.
