There is a fuel pump relay under the hood on the drivers side. I don't think it is a security problem. Security shuts down the ignition. So it is probably the fuel pump. And the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank.

Was the fuel system flushed of all old fuel ? do that. This included the lines and the filter and the fuel injectors. Use a product called "CHEMTOOL" it is made by Berrymans and available at any auto parts store.

I have a 1996 Mercedes C220 and I replaced batteries on the remote because they were dead. Well at least I hope it was that and the remote isn't messed up. It's the key that flips out. I wanted to...

They are mated, there is no need to reprogram them. I assume that the key starts the car and the problem you are having is that the remote does not lock and unlock the doors. If you have a second key and it works properly then your first key/remote is broken or you have the new batteries in wrong. If you push and hold one of the buttons there should be a light that flashes on the remote. (some do not have this). A replacement remote has to be ordered at the dealer and will either come pre-programmed for your car, or they will do it when the key shows up. Nothing the home user can do here really.

To change batteries remove panel back of key then screws on plastic bar

Your starter probably went out on you or you might have a gotten a bad battery it happens sometimes. Also you alternator might be draining your battery.
