Question about Cars & Trucks
Mercedes ! so your locks probably got some liquid oil something in them by some clever guy trying to fix it, bad move, get yourself some graphite. just a small bottle, with a SMALL opening don't cut it off just poke it. small hole! it is a metal powder that if you get it on your clothes it stains, so with a old towel in your lap, put a bit of graphite on your key and rub it all over, then blow a little with the bottle nozzle into the key hole just once, then start moving the key in and out slowly, it will get easier , add a little more powder then start on turning the key . work your way through all the locks like this . should fix all of them and make other stuff start coming on again. too much of this stuff wont hurt it but does sort of clog it with the greasy stuff in there, take your time.

I have a 2001 C240 with the same issue. I removed the positive battery cable from the battery and kept it off for 30 seconds then replaced it. Everything was reset and the key worked.
