The problem is that it intermittently won't start. Put the key in, turn the ignition "ON", and everything lights up as normal. Turn it to "START" - and nothing happens. Not even a hint at cranking. My


It sounds like you have a bad battery. Even though everything lights up, your battery doesn't have enough power to crank the engine (which requires a lot more power than the lights)

E320 key won't start 1st try


It is a key issue most likely, try unlocking the car and taking a little more time to insert key into igniton than you normally do to see if that works. It can be a coding/timing issue in the anti-theft logic and most times replacing the key is all that is needed. otherwise it is the EIS acronym for electronic ignition switch which is a major control unit for the starting and anti-theft system.

go to dealer to reset system, or download instructions from internet. It may be possible for a tow-truck operator to do this, but ask and check first, so you don't pay for nothing.

The EIS (Electronic Ignition Switch) is malfunctioning. You will have to replace the EIS and take the car to a dealer to reprogram the keys.

Key will not turn in the lock/non start


Hi

I take it you mean it will not turn the steering lock ?

If so, try turning the steering wheel sharply to the left, and then to the right, whilst operating the ignition key to the start position.

I hope this is of assistance to you.
Let me know if this does not help.
Good Luck !
John.

Ignition/steering wheel locked!!!


1998 models and newer use an Electronic Ignition System (EIS). If one of the keys works and the other one doesn't, then you have a failed key. If both keys do not work, then you most likely have a faulty EIS module. Only proper diagnosis will pinpoint the source.

For older models that use the key blade system, usually the lock cylinder binds and requires replacement. But, try a replacement key first just in case the blade is excessively worn.
