Could it be the key?

The battery died in the S420 - endedup getting the trunk open - hooked up another battery to it in hopes to jump it- didn't work. All the lights and dash work, but the car won't crank. any ideas on how i can get it started? Could it be that the ignition isn't reading the key correctly and I'll have to get redone?

I think you will get a better response posting in the car's relating forum section. I'm assuming you have a '91-'99 W140 S420, if so post your question here:

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but the wise so full of doubts.
