Hi, my name is***** the car starts but immediately stalls the problem will be with the anti-theft system. Possible causes are a bad key or a bad antenna ring around the ignition switch or a fault with the anti-theft control module. If you have a spare key you should try that first. Next step will be to get the car connected to the Mercedes tester to check for faults in the drive authorization system.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
