if its flooding then its not sparking,or auto choke stuck .suggest you learn german and swear at it in own language ,failing which take it to a dealer as it could be anything from a cracked coil pack to a temperature sensor and without the vehicle in front of me this is one of them look and see type jobs.Could evan be the multiplug on the coil pack loose honestly its very dificult to diagnose without hands on .

Yuo'll need to take it for diagnostic scanning to find out which air bag is showing a defect. The shop will then advise you.

Depending on the age of the car.. it may simply be the battery in the key.
You can either buy a new key.. or pry open the key and replace the 5 dollar battery.. you need to be handy with a soldering gun..
Before you do this.. you can try reprogramming the key..
1:Get in the car and close all of the doors.
2: Turn key on (1st position), and wait for all the lights to go out before turning ignition off. (or under five seconds)
Perform next steps within 30 seconds.
3: Press and hold the UNLOCK button on the key.
4: While still holding the UNLOCK button, press and release the LOCK button three times. Do this deliberately, not too quickly.
5: Release the unlock button. Car's locks should cycle, indicating the key is programmed.
6: On some cars, all keys are cleared from memory, so you will need to repeat steps 2-4 for any other keys.
7: Once all keys are programmed, use the last programmed key to turn the ignition on and back off one last time.
If programming more than one key.. Must be done within 30 seconds of completing the above steps.
This is the first step.. next would be checking the receiver ..I believe it is located in or near the rear view mirror on that car.
If you replace the key battery..or the key(s).. you will have to use the above programming steps to get them to work properly.
Best of luck!

The CD/DVD, has 2 switch one for open and another for to close. the swicth can be dust, dirty, or defective.Test the power switch for dirty, dust, or defective.
The unity can be dissasembly, and make troubleshooting, diagnose.
I can recommend you to go the repair shop. When the switch is NOT open they NOT send the signal to the SYSCON(CPU) or microcontroller.
God bless you
