1996 E320 immobilised-Please Help

Dear knowledgable people. I am a first time owner of car mentioned. Extremely frustrated with intermittant problem- On return to Car , it will not be opened or started by key. Red and green lights flash alternately. 3 tows later and two days with a MB dealership do not find the solution. Can I have a manual bypass switch fitted? Thanks Ken

I know nothing about the "manual bypass switch" question, but I would have taken your Benz to a dealer too. I hope this level of service incompetance didn't cost you much.

Are there any other dealers nearby, or maybe it's better at this point to find a good indy shop?

Good luck and welcome to benzworld.org
