Any Mercedes Sprinter mechanics out there?

I'm supposed to be well on the way to Tutbury Castle, instead I'm stuck waiting for the RAC. My previously totally reliable Sprinter 416 has decided to throw a hissy fit and displays "Error" on the multi-function display after "Start", and nothing happens except the Tacho whirring.

Plenty of power in the battery.

Arrrgh!!!

Jammed starter solenoid?

Are they the ones that you need the full computer diagnostics for no matter what the fault or how small it is & it just shuts down or goes into limp home mode just for laughs?

It is such a complicated monster I wouldn't know where to start. We called the RAC and after 50 minutes chap turns up - and the brute started first touch of the key. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

Then en route to Tutbury Castle the clutch started failing intermittently.....suspect air in the hydraulics, managed to get there, do the show, and get home, will have to get my marvellous mobile mechanic to have a look. Can't afford MB main dealer rates!

Best wishes
