1998 ML320 cars in shop repair bill up to 3000.00 still not fixed

I Have a 1998 mercedes ML 320..

I left the headlights on went out the next day noticed it and tryed to jump the vehicle off it would start and die immediatly. Was told it was my Key Bought one 375.00 still started and run one time but said code on radio, killed it wouldn't start again..........Had it towed to the dealership only one that works on mercedes within 300 miles from my home. When they got it The Mechanic said it was the transponder cost 485.00 call said it was fixed then called back and said it not. it started I think same as it did for me when i got the new key. Then he say's it needs a new computer cost 2200.00. He put it on Now say's the vehicle runs, But need a new key remote did i get screwed I bought a New key for it now their back to a new key remote or do you think it was to programe a new one to the new computer. It's been at the shop for 3 weeks. I got 3310.00 in repair cost on this vehicle right now!!!!!!!!!! I think it had to do with the key to begin with......What do you think and what do you do?????

Might want too try the W163 forum but NEVER JUMP these cars, thats my feelings & if you do make sure the Key is not in the Ignition.

I'm willing too bet you got hosed, considering they charged $375 for a key? they only cost $130 around here....

Stealerships love when folks have a car and cant do a thing with it but take it in, as in your case...I'm sure they tried eat you alive and it appears they were successful, I hope you dont have many miles on that tank because you just spent 75% its worth......

Sorry I cant help, just offering my .02; you got hosed......
