SOURCE: c240 mercedes key wont turn seems locked

I have a 2001 C240 with the same issue. I removed the positive battery cable from the battery and kept it off for 30 seconds then replaced it. Everything was reset and the key worked.

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

SOURCE: wont start security light stays on

Body Control Module (BCM) on both counts. Find a shop in your town that specializes in electrical systems to test it. Beware, these can be intermittent problems, so make sure they keep it until the car does what you have observed. Expect to spend about $450 for the replacment. Dealers quoted me between $700 and $1,100 for the same repair. By the way, a new BCM will probably only last you about 12 months.

I can open the trunk, doors and glove box with my key. But not the ignition. The car has been sitting for several months. Solution? 1987 420SEL Mercedes.


Rock the steering wheel back and forth as you gently try to turn the key.

Could also be the ignition is worn - also try the same with the key flipped over. A tiny spray of WD40 in the ignition would be the next thing I'd try.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

M 2007 mercedes c230 will sometimes not start. When I turn the key it sticks in that position and trys to start but doesn't and I must turn the key off to make it stop. If I let it sit it will start...


Likely a bad ignition tumbler, considering the key "sticking" in the start position.

Best bet is to hit the dealer and ask one of their service advisors if they've run into this problem before.

Vito ignition won't turn to start engine


Hi, if you put your key in to the ignition and the dash lights up and when you turn it to crank and nothing happens , well it can be a couple of things , i would need to know more of the symptoms , but if that is happening and you keep turning the key on and off and eventually it fires up , it is the ecu that has gone bad im afraid ,unless you are loaded with cash you wont mind the mb bill for parts and labour , the best solution is get a second hand one from a van dismanteler , i would recommond dronesfields in manchester excellent alround , the look out for a good indie and have him take the dump file that is on the old ecu and keep it on file so when you get the replacment ecu he will be able to load the file onto it .
hope this is of help to you ,
cheers Joe.

Key fob will not connect with ignition on Mercedes Vito 115 2008


More likely than not, you have the famous broken solder joint(s) at the coil inside the FOB...if that is fine and all solder joints look fine , then you had best get MB, or a good Mercedes Independant garage, to check the EIS and make sure it sees the key
