Is your check engine light on? Im quite certain it is because benzes are so sensitive to these kinds of things. Now, i can think of a couple of things which are common to crank no start are

1. Lack of fuel
2. Lack of spark

Several tests need to be made and im not even sure if conventional equipment can be used since its a benz, but im quite certain it will. Its just that its a benz....a benz is not a car its something beyond that.....a Honda....thats a car


3- lack of compression
