Guys I have had the same problem with my C200 elegance. I have been researching this problem for 4 weeks now the conclusion I'm coming to is to burn my car, but, you guys might not be in the same position. The answer so far after looking at every angle is to go to a main dealer and let them sort it, it will be pricey. I have tried to locate the same model ignition for my car, the idea was to replace the barrel and key with another 1 but it turns out I would have a better chance of digging for oil in my garden. The out come was to purchase a barrel and key from s well known site take a chance for 250 as to whether it works as there was no refunds and then the cost of the labour to have it fitted. You may save a couple of hundred quid but will you ever drive your car again with confidence. Watch thus space I will let you guys know my decision .

    Hey Guys I found a solution to my C200 ignition problem and have had it fixed, I had my ECU unit checked and barrel I was told this wasn't the problem it was the keys. They were checked properly using the correct machine and were re-coded. The reset method of holding the lock button and pressing the open button 3 times, 5 times, 10 times did not work and I would advise you not to try it, all it does is mess the keys up more. Before i place the name and number of the gentleman that fixed my car, I would offer this advice to and that's make sure you renew your batteries regular as this also didn't help with the problem.
    The gentleman I used and I must say was fantastic he delivered a great service and was way way cheaper then obviously going to a main dealer, I would recommend him hands down to everyone I know he delivered a great service at a great price and came the same day I phoned him. The company is called

    BOW LOCKS his name is Rickey Costas his mobile is 07966 297 387
    business number 0203 291 2163
    Guys I hope this is of help please when contacting Rickey Costas that John from Orsett passed on his number he will know who I am. many thanks maloney124.

1999 VW bug wont start-suspect anti theft system. driver lock knob has a red light flashing. When key is turned to on lights illuminate but wont start. when passenger door is opened flasher come on what...


remove the key from the ignition and press the UNLOCK. its saying the alarm was triggered, eg if door was opened without first using the unlock on the remote. maybe when alarm was armed not all doors were fully closed. or you just reconnected the battery so the door was open without you ever pressing the unlock on the remote(which could be called DISARM the alarm)

1999 Chevy silverado z71trying to program a new key fob


Use this procedure for New Body Style.
1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.

4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).

Key remote wont work even with new batteries


The remote likely needs to be reprogramed. If you have both remotes you will need to take these to the dealer and have them reprogramed.
