I got the same problem about a month ago.

Why is my C180 2011 model does not start,yet the key functions well.


This could be the ecu control unit. Mercedes Ecm Repair
Sometimes a bad ecu will make a Mercedes misfire or not start. But the problem could also be related to a bad ignition key. You will need Star diagnostics to troubleshoot the vehicle.

My Mercedes C200 Komp has started sticking in 2nd or 3rd gear for the first journey of the day only(?) Been advised of a gear box oil leak and told that an Electrol spped plate, filter, oil and plug is...


hi check and clean the MS air flow sensor, also the gear box needs a service every 2 years. now the service technician will tell you major gear box problems but it happened to me aswell and it turns out the valves inside the gear box was sticking to the valve body and causing the gears to stay in a specific gear till it reaches the rev limiter and would change. so after i got the oil and filter changed on my box, it still got stuck but dont worry as thats a common problem with a very easy solution, take the car on a long road and really put your foot down, let the engine and gear box temperature rise from hard driving and the valves should release itself from the body of the box and re-lubricate itself not to get stuck again

Sounds like the kompressor, the unit injects air into the motor. Its bearings are probably on the way out.
