Customer Question
New key programmed by...

New key programmed by dealer car still will not crank 1998 ml 320

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mercedes. The Mercedes Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

The car has sat up for 5 months, i lost the key and just replaced it. The key came pre programmed and the car still will not crank

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes if i can. I have done work on my s600 and its not that hard.

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Nothing I just got the replacement key today.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Mercedes Mechanic should know about your Mercedes?

It sat up 5 months, before that i had change the spark plugs the oil the air compressor. I don't think that its something big.
