3) I don't even know where the battery is in an SLK, trunk or engine compartment? But before you freak - make sure no connections were knocked off while doing the battery change.

4) just a guess and do a search on this - but isn't there a resetting or warm start resetting if you start the car with the gas peddle pressed all the way to the floor?
1. same battery specs brand new from costco. (car does start up without any problems) just won't stay running

2. yes check a million times so far :-(

3. engine compartment.

4. I tried to do that. Not sure If i did it right.. if anyone has more info on this that would be great.
