Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is***** the car stay running on ether sprayed into the air intake?
Hi Ken, if the car runs on ether the problem is most likely the key. You should make sure that you have power to the injectors. If you have power to the injectors and it runs on ether it would indicate no injector pulse. If you have no injector pulse it means that the car is in immobilizer mode. Locking and unlocking the car would clear the immobilizer unless the key was bad. If you get the car connected to a factory scan tool you may be able to clear the immobilizer faults and get it running. It's also possible that you have 6 stuck fuel injectors.
Let me know what you find out with the ether.
Can you lock and unlock ALL of the doors when using the key in the driver's door lock?
Go ahead and replace the battery and see if you can synchronize the remote. Follow the procedure below.
Do you have the red and green lights on the outer door handle? Do they blink green when you unlock the door?
It does sound like it's locked in anti theft mode. Try leaving a window down and locking the car with the remote. Wait 5 minutes then reach in and open a door using the inside door handle and see if you can trigger the alarm then use the remote to lock and unlock the car and see if you can turn the alarm off.
Also check all of the fuses in the trunk fuse box. Also try disconnecting the battery cables and connecting the two cable ends together for 5 minutes then reconnect them to the battery and see if you can start it.
Hi, sorry for the wait I had a busy Monday at work. Ideally you should get the car scanned with a Mercedes tester to check for fault codes. If you are unable to do that I think ordering a new key is reasonable. The wrench symbol is just the maintenance reminder.
Let me know how you make out.
