  1. It’s important to note that in the Mercedes-Benz W204, apart from the main battery, there is also an auxiliary battery which plays a crucial role in the car’s electrical system, especially in models equipped with the start-stop function. The primary purpose of these batteries is to support the main battery during short-term loads, such as starting the engine or using electrical conveniences when the engine is off. This ensures that the main battery is not overly stressed, leading to a longer lifespan. It’s advisable to regularly check the condition of the auxiliary battery and replace it if necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the car’s systems.

    • We have insufficient data; we would need the exact engine version and information on whether your car has a Start-Stop system. Most likely, you need a battery sized 278x175x190 mm. If it’s about a car with a start-stop system, then it would additionally be an AGM battery.
