Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

2 Answers

My dad has a mercedez benz 2004 C220 CDI it wont start?

It's an automatic, diesel avantgarde model, he drove it to work fine, then went to the shops and when he came back to the car it just wouldn't start, when they key goes in the ignition and the key is turned it doesn't respond doesn't even make a noise nothing, but all the buttons on the car key work

it had to be towed away to a local garage, and they have identified its a problem with the ignition but dont know which part because it has many parts to it or something?

Any ideas on whats the matter, why it happened, how long it will take to fix, and how much? Im from UK

What I think that the shop did and they will not tell u is that they try to start the car with the wrong key.... try to remember if thhere was more similar cars like your in the shop .. the computer will shut down and u have to reprogram computer car to recognize keys. check into taht first if really there was not sign of anything wrong with ignition swicth or electrical problem

Well if it is in a garage they should be more than capable of identifying the issue unless they have no knowledge ....a simple process of elimination even a read-out should be at hand to them could take a few hours to a few days or less to determine this ..

E320 mercedez no start after replace alternator


is the battery still strong?

i'm just wandering why did you replace the alternator ? ( the battery could have been weak )

or while replacing the alternator, you could have forgotten some essential wires that is connected to the starter.

please verify that all wires prior to replacement of the alternator have been restore back to its original location.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Sounds to be a loose or corroded wire/s at either starter motor or at battery fusible links.
Also check the earth strap (Cable) between engine and bodywork.
Hope this helps, MMP
