SOURCE: mercedes/dead battery can't open trunk help

Just had the same problem.

The fact the key had not been used in many years the locking mechanism was basically stiff'

Applied copious amounts of wd40 kept turning the key back and forward while applying pressure and release to the boot lid did the trick

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.

I have the same issue (battery is completely dead in my 1998 Mercedes C280 and I can't pop open the trunk). I looked under the hood and have no idea where the positive charging post would be - can anyone help me find it? Thanks

1997 Mercedes c230 turns over fire once and die out


Have you tried first priming and purging the fuel lines of air bubbles prior to replacing the fuel pump filters? If you did and the engine still won't turn, otherwise you'll also have ignition problems. If the Toyota cars have 4 reasons the engine won't run, the Mercedes Benz has 101 reasons why the engine won't run, so to speak. So you start checking on the fuel pressure, fuel injection voltage or signals, spark ignition and all the way to the throttle sensors, crank pos senseor, ecu, or even the car alarm/immobilizer.... But first keep trying on purging all the air bubbles (with the Schrader purge valve on the rack) and make sure you have adequate voltage on your battery for high speed cranking, sometimes these will take a while at first.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

98 c230 key won't turn and steering stays locked...can't move car....help!!!


first replace the battery in your key and have a look if you have any additional key try by that key it may work if without right diagnose no one can find it's faulty key or electronic ignition switch, if not the fault in key possibly faulty steering lock or electronic ignition switch, in this case you have to get your car in to the Mercedes workshop for diagnose.
