SOURCE: no spark

Check all your fuses. If there is no apparent problem, try running a direct wire from the pos (+) or red post on the battery to the positive post on your coil, then with this directly connected turn your key and see if it starts. If it does start you have a problem with the wiring from tour ignition to the fuse box or from fuse box to coil. If it still doesnt start you may need to check your spark plugs and then compression. If there is spark there but still wont run it could, and is more likely a fuel problem. Id suggest cleaning the carburettor, changing the fuel filter and blowing some air down the fuel line fron the engine end to the fuel tank, as there could be something blocking the end of the tube in the fuel tank. A good way to check if it is a fuel problem is spray a heap of ether spray/engine start into the carburettor then turn your key. If it starts then dies again, you only have a fuel problem. Working out which is the problem will make it easier to fix and save you a heap of money. Good luck and hope it helps. Let me know which way makes it start, with a wire to the coil, or with the enigine start into the carby and ill giude you further if you want.

SOURCE: won,t start no ignition spark

Check all fuses and then fuel pressure, if all is good.
Then I would check to see if the tech moves when u try to start the engine.
If it does, then recheck crank sensor, might be defective.

How to replace ignition tumbler on 2000 ml320 mercedes benz?

i would assume that there is a hardened steel sleeve "VERY HARD" that surrounds the barrel the same as the W140 model. the repair shop will have trouble cutting this off , like the novices at diesel motors in perth western australia. and will probably want to charge you around $3,000 AUD to replace the key and barrel. which collapsed in my case. jamming the key in the ignition. not bad for a vehicle that had cost $219,000 AUD , and had covered 220,000 km, when there countless thousands of 40 year old toyotas and holdens running around with the original ignition barrels. anyway , digressing , the switch that sits behind the actual barrel lock will no doubt fail not long after u change the barrel also. because i would say that the junk they manufacture for these over rated piles of trash (still riding on the reputation of their 1970's products, is about the same quality level as cheap rubbish componentry used in the W140 . "google search for W140 wiring harness there s a blog with a list of owners in the US with failed wiring insulation causing the copper wires to short out and in many cases cause engine fires. manufactured by Bosch to MB specification to be biodegradable, what a totally brilliant place to start , crucial electronic components, with severely limited life from the start.! , the ignition switch doesn't need to be cut out of the steel dash frame like in earlier models, and is not particularly hard to remove however the stealer will still try to slug u around a grand and tell u its a HUGE job. a friend of mine had my ignition barrel and switch out in 20 minutes after the switch behind the barrel failed after the dealer installed a new key and barrel and charged me 6 hours or so at $120/ hour.

Ingine will not turn off after taking keys out . Everything else goes out but ingine keeps running.

Sounds like a faulty ignition barrel! If you take off the trims underneath the steering column you'll be able to gain access to the ignition barrel casing where the key goes. By undoing the casing you'll be able to turn off the engine with a simple flat bladed screwdriver.

Ignition barrels arent too expensive to have replaced, the other problem that might occur is the chance of needing a new set of keys or to have your current keys programmed to the new barrel (Normally a new set of keys is the common procedure with a new barrel)!

Hope this helps
