Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, are you saying that the key will not start the car?
Yes. It stopped operating the door/doors first. Now your turn the key in the ignition the dash fires up but then there's just a clicking noise and the engine doesn't fire up
Ok, this sounds like a dead car battery. I'd try jump starting the car first.
OK, I'll try that thanks. If this fails am I looking at a new key fob or worse? :-)
The fob won't keep the starter from cranking the motor.
If the jump fails you will need to have the starter circuit tested.
It sounds mainly like a bad battery though.
OK, thanks - very much appreciated. Rob
