You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on. Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.

Re: 1994 C280 wont start
Hi, even if the radio lights and other accesories are working your battery can be low ,the starter takes a lot of power to turn and if the battery is low it will not start,have your battery checked before you do any other costly repairs,.....GoodLuck..

To clarify - are you saying it does not crank, or does not start ?
lt sounds like you are saying the engine will crank but not start, but then why would you need to jump the battery if that were true ?
If it cranks but does not start, have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking ? The fuel pressure could be low after sitting for a few hours if the check valve in the fuel pump is faulty.
do you know if the remote is a after market or factory remote. have you tried to stick the key in the door lock and lock and unlock the door,and when start it. all new cars have have theif module in them ,and if is bypassed it will lock up
If there is a problem with the crankshaft sensor then when you attempt to start it the ecm cannot confirm when number one cylinder is on top-dead-center thus not activate the 'open loop' part of the engine controller. I think the reason that it was running fine then would not start was because the only time the crankshaft sensor is used is when starting, not after while in closed loop.
They are two most common problems with this vehicle that will cause it to do this 1 bad distributor and the other bad MAIN relay. I need you to check for spark and gas when this vehicle does not start, contact if you need help checking when you figured out whats missing when you fail to start I will give you the answer, Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
