The ignition tumblers may be bad. If you can get the key in there is a way to replace the tumbler, if not it may need to be drilled out.

I have a 1988 420sel Mercedes Benz and the alarm goes off when I open the door..place help me


When you open it from the outside? If this is the case, try putting your key in the drivers door and turning it, whether it is locked or not. I have seen many people who keep their key fob in their pocket have all kinds of issues. So, don't keep your key fob in your pocket. If it is doing it from the inside after driving, that's a different story. It all depends on the specific conditions, if you would like to elaborate.

I can open the trunk, doors and glove box with my key. But not the ignition. The car has been sitting for several months. Solution? 1987 420SEL Mercedes.


Rock the steering wheel back and forth as you gently try to turn the key.

Could also be the ignition is worn - also try the same with the key flipped over. A tiny spray of WD40 in the ignition would be the next thing I'd try.

it would be cheaper to have a locksmith make a key to fit your old ignition lock. I dont know why you didnt do that, before ordering a lock cylinder. Nothing on a MB is cheap. the key is the cheapest thing there is.

1989 mercedes isnt starting and will not take a jump but battery has power but the car dosnt i checked the fuses and there good what do i do?


Ignition may be bad or stater/solenoid. Try "jumping" the starter with the key in the on position across the poles with a screwdriver if it turns over its most likely the ignition switch. If it just clicks its the starter itself. Or a little of both.
