1999 Merc-Benz C230 key won't work!

My 1999 C230 Kompressor key wouldn't turn in the ignition. I replaced the key batteries, but now it won't unlock/lock doors or turn to start car. I've checked battery (new 5/2008) and it is fully charged. My steering column is locked - I thought after I turned sharply to park. Please help!

Try another key, if not test the battery voltage. Your cars battery might be low, it needs full voltage to turn the key.

2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 kompressor warning gauge Battery / Alternator needs to be service.


check your volt gauge on the dash. if it's working properly, then your car is throwing a bad code. if the battery looks as though it's taking more than 14 volts, or less than 10, you have a problem.
