no start

W203 turn smart key all lights appear, fuel pump engages but engine will not crank...nothing. Battery is near new, fuses and solenoids ok, tried another key and no go. After umpteen tries engine started but after I stopped it wouldn't go again. Thinking it may be the starter relay. My normal spanner man has contracted the big C poor fellow and can no longer work. Car is in garage at home locked in park.
I have ordered a diagnostic scanner Icarsoft MB11 but that wont b here until later in the week. Any one with similar experience?

Thanks for all and any help

FWIW I purchased the OBD tester and it showed a relay in the SAM was faulty.....replaced the relay $25 OEM and the car is perfect. Quoted $1800-$4000 to replace SAM units. Tester was $250.
