MERCEDES E220 CABRIOLET 1996 IMMOBILISER RESET

I CANNOT reset the immobiliser since the battery was flat - and subsequently re-charged. The book instructions say to turn ignition to position II after triggering the key fob security light ( which works). I was told that you had to unlock the boot ?? or the Passenger door manually - but that has not cracked it. Any suggestions welcome as a mouse is starting to nest !!

Hello Haq!
Could it be the key just needs re-coding? maybe you are worrying to much as £177 would be about right as that would need coding etc., Try phoning your local Merc dealer or take the key and V5 to them for coding (Hopefully)
Good Luck!

SOURCE: How to reset service indicator on a 2000 E220 cdi?+ start problem

In regards to your service indicator reset, this needs to be done by the dealer using their computers.

Take it in and ask them to do this. Of course it should have been done with your last service.

With the merceds cars releying heavily on electronics, i would stongly suggest that you get it serviced, especially something that can possible effect your driving.

Keep in mind that although it's expensive to keep getting it serviced at the dealer, it will help hold the resale value.

Hope this helps,

Nathan.

Hello Abdul,
I had this problem and the solution is rather strange.... Change the battery in your remote key for a brand new fresh one and see if this solves the problem. Apparently, when the lithium battery is low, the central locking will continue to work but the immobiliser disarming circuit cannot decode the signal.
