2011 Solera won't crank

Engine won't even turn over...DEF tank full...
When I turn the ignition key to start position nothing happens. Tried jump starting and that didn't work. No system indicators lit to show a problem (idiot lights).
Any thoughts?

Do you get idiot lights when hooked to the jumper battery? If not, I suspect a broken/disconnected or bad battery cable connection.

Good possibly- Battery terminals at battery are heavily corroded at the post inside at contact point. Or grond to frame is poor connection. Happened to me, even jump source couldn't get through!

Does anthing else work? Radio, horn lights, etc?

Don't take this the wrong way...But is it in park or netural. I don't know about you but I have a knack for overlooking the stupid stuff and have done this before myself......

I had similar problem . I posted remedy. Fuse # 23 blown. I replaced fuse. Good to go. If it is the problem make sure to replace with 25 amp fusee.

I had the same problem and after a lot of @#%$# a buddy of mine who has Sprinter vans for his buisness came by a found a 15amp fuse in #23 it should be a 25amp. Brania has the right solution. the fuse is in the panel under the dash.

I'll call the Freightliner shop in the morning and tell them to see if this fuse is blown.
Does anyone know what this fuse is for?

It is to protect the starter. I had mine in Freightliner and had them check the amp draw on the starter. It needs to be 25amp fuse the surge on starting is around 18-20 amps. It is only for the starter. have them check the amps on the starter.
