Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
If your wife's key works fine and your key doesn't then there is a good possibility that your remote key is faulty. The alarm and locks may still work but those signals go to a different control module the when you try to start the car. If the ignition switch does not read the key then it will not allow you to start the car and sometimes not even turn the key in the ignition. Especially if there is any damage to the front part of the key where the red lens is at. Check and see if the infared signal is working on the remote key. To do this use a camera phone and go like your going to take a picture and point the key right at the lens of the camera phone. If it works you will see it on the screen. If it doesn't then you won't see anything when you push the button and hold it on the remote key. At the dealer they will probably ask for both keys and start by selling you a remote key.
