Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The only thing on the dash that comes up is the odometer and every now n then it says key not detected then after a few seconds the dash goes off completely till I open the door
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Yeh the battery is good I tested it on a volt meter and its 12.4 roughly
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 7 months ago

ok, does the car lock and unlock with the key?

how many keys do you have lets try another if you do.

Only have the 1 key and yes locks and unlocks
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 7 months ago

ok so the locking and unlocking go through the ignition switch so it knows its the right authorization code.

i think last night and right now are different instances.

your car has huge issues with the ignition switch and the electronic steering lock.

i cannot remember if your amg model has a electronic shifter

do you have the little electronic nub in the center console?

when you put the key into the ignition does the steering wheel make the zip noise and unlock? and when you remove the key does the steering wheel lock relock?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The steering lock is not on so can turn the wheel fine
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 7 months ago

with the key out?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 7 months ago

if it does it with the key out then you definitely have an issue with the electronic steering lock,

it will need to be replaced at a dealer.

its part of the antitheft system.

it is a coincidence , but those are extremely problematic in your year model.

hope this helps.
