1999 Clk 430 not starting

Hello All, i am new to the forum and i look forward to the many topics and discussions this forum has to offer.

My 1999 Clk 430 is not starting, it is turning over but won't start. I have already had the CPS changed and that wasn't the problem, initially i thought it was the key because of the lock cylinder not unzipping when placing the old key into it.
i bought a new key from MB and that solved the unzipping problem. It seems to not be getting any fuel to the engine. when i turn the key i can hear the fuel pump working.

I was told by a MB service tech that i wasn't getting any fuel from right side of the car. He also told me that it would not be worth doing a full diagnosis to find an fix the problem because i have had my car broken into where m window was broken and my radio and speakers were snatched out leaving wires loose from the console. my door panels were ripped off as well.

I can somewhat understand the MB Dealer wanting to fix everything to uphold the high standard of owning a Mercedes.

I can always get a new radio and speakers. I just simply want my car to start again.

Any advice would help and be greatly appreciated.

you'll need to get on SDS to see where the communication is getting held up, w/o that you'll just be guessing Where is GA are you located?

Insurance won't help out w/ the repairs?? I agree on the stereo bit. Not 100% Sure about compatibility but there is a fellow just down the road who is parting a 209 CLK, perhaps you could upgrade door cards etc... price should be right!
