First you need to see if the remote central locking is working. It sounds like your transponder(key) is un synchronized. Even if the central locking is working there is a d.a.s.(driver authorization problem). Try your other key if you have one. There is a way to resynch the key w/o a factory scan tool but you have to follow the directions exactly and be quick. Point key at door receptor.( grab handle area) Hold the lock button down and press the unlock button 5 times in 10 seconds while holding down the lock button. hold the lock button down the entire 10 seconds even if you've hit the button 5 times. after the 10 seconds is up release and hit the lock button again. The d.a.s. system shuts off your fuel pump when their is an authorization error. It is a common problem in 98 and 99 ml's. Your owner's manual tells you how to resynch the key if my description is difficult to follow. Hopefully I have been helpful

How I can programing my contro of mercedes benz LM 320 OF 2002

if original, try flicking the key 5 times and then hold lock and open at the same time, assuming the key starts the car and is original key and remote, you will see the locks actuate if the battery is also good or new, usually they do not loose the fob memmory. try a new battery to the remote first.

320 ml wont start along with entry lights not goning on

Try charging your battery and/or replacing it, sounds like a dead battery. Repost if I am missing something, you didn't say if anything worked at all.

If your var has 55 fitted as standard then it is very possible that you have a fuse problem. In a lot of vehicles to run such high wattage bulbs create a lot of heat and as some refelectors are covered plastic they tend to melt. If how ever you have good refelectors and still wish to run 100 the I suggest you put a relay in the system and take the load off the circuit. Use the exexting head light wire to activate the relay and run directly from the battery( use a fuse in this wire)

ML 320 1998 Model Remote Central locking failure. Looking for new Authorization Center and 2 new keys to buy please.

Any Mercedes Benz dealer can handle your needs. Also some independent shops can help, but I'd go to the dealer, they warranty their work.

My ml 320 does not start. the battery is new

Crankshaft position sensor maybe at fault when it fails i will stall the engine and/or not let the engine start and will not throw a code. Beyond that and no other explanation also replace the coil packs as no one rarely does and they may be bad.

My 1998 mercedes ml320 starts for 1or 2 seconds and then stalls.

You either have to replace the battery in your key fob or have it reprogrammed. Verify this by trying the second key, if you have it. AAA told me that you can reprogram it by leaving it in the ignition, with the key turned to the first position, overnight. I haven't tried it.
