Customer Question

Our 2010 Mercedes C300 appeared to have dead battery. Called AAA and they could not get car to take a charge or start. Now car is dead, stuck in park, and key is locked in ignition. Any thoughts?

Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less. Sounds like the ignition switch has failed. This is a huge issue on the 2010 models. The ignition switch will have to be replaced by a dealer as there is reprogramming required. The ignition switch is the slot that you put the key into to turn and crank. Sorry if you already knew that. Hope this information helps. Lou
