How do I remove electronic key push fob from ignition switch?


The key can't come out unless you have it all the way off. Sometimes the steering lock and brake lockout prevent that, so wiggle the steering lock and push on the brake while trying to turn it off. You also have to be in park if automatic.

first replace the battery in your key and have a look if you have any additional key try by that key it may work if without right diagnose no one can find it's faulty key or electronic ignition switch, if not the fault in key possibly faulty steering lock or electronic ignition switch, in this case you have to get your car in to the Mercedes workshop for diagnose.

Can my key be reprogrammed in the ignition


The electronic key which you have only need to programme once, then it will work till get faulty not necessary to re programme there are only one way to re programme, it's only can do with new electronic ignition switch replacement so if you replace new ignition switch insert your key in it and it will take few minute for programme it take all the programme automatically then you can turn the key and start the car,
If you don't have replace the ignition switch but key is not working it's faulty either key or electronic ignition switch, if you have any other additional key if the car start with that key it's very clear it's faulty your key which is not working give me more details do you have the other key and only not working one key like that, however first replace the battery for your key and try if not work put a comment i will give you more details,

All electronic accessories work when key is in


test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

Key on engine running trouble code 55


Warning Chime Systems The generic electronic module (GEM) will sound the following warnings:
  • key-in-ignition warning
  • safety belt warning
  • headlamp switch ON warning
  • door ajar warning
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Headlamp Switch On Warning The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds when the driver door is opened while the headlamp switch (11654) is in the PARK or HEAD position, and continues to sound at a rate of 4 chimes per second until the headlamp switch is turned off or the driver door is closed.
  • When the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, power is supplied through Circuit 293 (O/R) to the GEM.
  • When the driver door is open, the driver door open warning lamp switch (10B997)is closed and ground is supplied to the generic electronic module (GEM).
A delayed headlamps on repetitive chime will sound for a period of three seconds beginning twenty seconds after the key is turned to OFF, LOCK or ACC, the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, and the driver door is closed. Delayed headlamps on is terminated by opening and closing the driver door again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Door/Liftgate Ajar Warning The door/liftgate ajar warning functions as follows:
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds a warning tone for one second when any vehicle door, liftgate window or the liftgate is ajar without any other door already open and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • Power is then supplied through Circuit 627 (BK/O) to the door ajar warning indicator lamp which remains illuminated until all doors are closed or the ignition switch is no longer in the RUN position.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key-in-Ignition Warning The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds when the LH front door is opened with the key in the ignition switch and continues to sound until the key is removed or the door is closed.
  • When the key is in the ignition switch, the ignition key warning switch terminal and wire (11A128) is closed and ground is supplied through Circuit 158 (BK/PK) to the generic electronic module (GEM).
  • When the LH front door is open, the LH front door open warning lamp switch (10B997) closes and ground is supplied through Circuit 57 (BK) to the generic electronic module (GEM).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Safety Belt Warning When the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START from the OFF or ACC position and remains in RUN or START, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled. The safety belt warning indicator lamp (10C859) will turn on for 60 seconds, or until the LH front safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and lamp activate at the same time. If the safety belt is buckled when the ignition key is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the lamp will prove out for two seconds, but chime will not be activated. Any time the key is changed to RUN from START while the safety belt warning indicator is activated, the safety belt warning indicator will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed, or the safety belt is buckled.
