This is kind of weird, the battery can power everything including opening and closing the sunroof. But as soon as you try to start it the start either clicks or nothing at all and in the earlier cars the lights will dim. Turn the ignition all the way off and back to position II all your electronics will work. It is really annoying I had a similar problem. Take the battery into the shop and get them to test it. Benz starters take alot of juice before the crank. I still think your battery is the problem. However, get your battery tested first, pep boys do this for free out here and is well worth it. Even if it is a new battery it has to have enough juice to crank the starter.
good luck anyone else
