If you mean wont turn over, most likely its the neutral safety switch. If it turns over but wont start I suggest the coils have gone bad.

What is wrong with my ignition?


Maybe the ignition lock that was "fixed" actually needed to be replaced. Also, why would "fixing" the ignition lock require a new key?

09 mercedes c350 won't start able to turn ignition switch unable to shift no noise no nothing


I just went through this two days ago. You probably need a new ignition. What happens is these cars lose connection for some reason to the chip in the key and it can't be fixed with just programming. It has to be a whole new ignition. Mercedes are so much different then to any American car. Good luck and it costed around 950 to fix in Wa state.

SOUND LIKE PROBLEM THE KEY WORN OR LOCK CYLINDER COULD BE BROKEN .I WOULD CODE SCAN FOR FAULTY IMMOBILIZER MODULE OR KEY SWITCH COIL OR TRANSPONDER KEY.THE WAY MERCEDES BENZ GOT IT SET UP.IF IGNITION KEY AND LOCK CYLINDER ALSO IMMOBOLIZER MODULE HAS TO BE REPLACED THEY HAVE TO REPLACE AND REPROGRAM NOT A HOME FIX. THEY HAVE TO USE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO REPROGRAM KEY SWITCH AND IMMOBILIZER.

I got a new mercedes benz key and when I plug it in nothing happens. The dash does not turn on, it will not turn on the car nor will it open or lock the car. My old key will not work either. What...


one possibility could be the ignition switch itself also when you ordered the new key did they order a replacement key or an additional key. an additional key will work right away. a replacement key has to sit in the ignition switch for awhile before it can turn into the first position and then it will take awhile before it will turn to the second position. this is because the key and ignition switch use a rolling code type security system. it changes every time the car is started. so it could take awhile for the new key you got to syncronize with the ignition switch. hope this helped

When Automatic Transmissions completely fail; It is not a bad thing: all you need do is get the transmission fluid moving again and. doing it's job.
So; all you need do is change the transmission fluid filter.

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.
