The auxiliary battery is a component in the electrical system of some Mercedes-Benz vehicles that stores and supplies electrical energy to specific systems and components independently of the main 12-volt battery. It is typically located in the trunk or near the main battery, and it is connected to the vehicle’s alternator, which recharges the battery as the vehicle runs.

The auxiliary battery is responsible for providing power to certain systems and components of the vehicle when the main battery is disconnected or when the engine is not running. This includes systems such as the vehicle’s alarm, navigation, and infotainment systems, and also backup power for the main battery. It is a lead-acid type battery, which is a type of rechargeable battery that uses lead plates and sulfuric acid to store and supply electrical energy.

In Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the auxiliary battery is typically designed to be durable and long-lasting, able to withstand the high loads and stresses of powering the vehicle’s systems independently of the main battery. It should be inspected regularly and replaced if they show signs of wear or damage to ensure proper function and prevent potential electrical system failure. It is recommended to check the battery connections and terminals for any corrosion and clean them up if necessary. Some models of Mercedes-Benz vehicles are equipped with an auxiliary battery as a standard feature, while others may have it as an optional feature or not have it at all.
