Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
I have a 1999 mercedes benz convertible that will not start, i use the key to open the car and when i put the key in the ignition it did not start, the key did not turn, but the lights and the radio does work, so i thought it was the batteries in the key and i changed the batteries, and now the car does not open with the key, and the trunk does not open, and when i use the master key to open the trunk the windows go up and down and the locks opened-and i cannot put the top back up on the car.-help.
!st by changing your remote batteries you need to resynchronize your key. I believe you place it in the ignition turn and then remove and press your unlock button. The procedure will be in you manual. It almost sounds to me that the linkage is out on your trans and the car is not all the way in park. Look under neath and see if your shift rod is dangling from your trans. Next if it is not try starting the car in neutral. A common failure for that era is the shift box which allows the vehicle to start. Another problem could be is that your parked on a hill and steering son't come unlocked if this is the case crank on your wheel hard to allow key to turn. If all else fails call M.B. roadside it should be free
