SOURCE: headlights come on when ign key turned on without

that model of mercedes did come out with daylight running lights meaning that when the key is on the headlights come on at a lower wattage. and if your bulbs keep blowing i would have the wiring checked out.

How to bypass an immobiliser

you cannot disable the immobiliser. it is a system mercedes has put into to prevent theft. however, you can bypass the immobiliser (otherwise known as EIS, Electronic Ignition Switch) in order to switch ON the car, but you wont be able to start it.
what you need to do it remove the connector from the back of the EIS module and bridge terminals 15r and terminal 30. i recommend getting a wiring diagram specific to your car to be sure of the terminals.

however, do this at your own risk.

I have a 2002 mercedes s430 and the key wont turn in the ignition. alredy replaced car battery, still nothing

take out a small loan and go to a dealer and ask them to sell you a properly keyed lock cylinder for your car, costs about 50 bucks in a normal car who knows in one of those. then have a look on youtube and see if you cannot watch someone replacing a lock cylinder in any mercedes, all are most likely pretty similar. then decide if you want to try it yourself or pay a dealer. you drive an expensive car and you are supposed to spend money on it.
