Hi! Sounds like the key needs to be coded again, take all relvant details i.e. chassis vin number, Registration document (Title) and key to your local Mercedes Dealership and hopefully they'll rec-code it for youor replace it.
Good Luck and a Happy New Year to You and your family.

SOURCE: MY WILL NOT START THE CAR C240 MERCEDES BATTERY IS NOT DEAD

I am assuming that the engine won't even turn over. could be lots of different things. The simplist is to make sure the car in in PARK , won't start if not. Other things could be , Security imobilizer if you have one. Does your key have a electronic chip in it ? Try your other set of keys if you have one. Check if battery connections are clean and tight.

When i turn my key on my wife's 01 mercedes benz s500 there is no ignition light and it will not start.Everything else works just fine.The alarm,the locks and everything work ok.I have changed the car...


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.

Battery went dead,clifford alarm locked the engine


Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.

That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.

If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.

98 celica battery went dead replaced now it want crank


Try this: Unhook the battery. Reconnect the battery. When the horn starts to beep, cycle the ignition key in the ignition on-off 5 times. This resets the alarm; the cycling of the key. Please advise me if this works for you.
