1997 C280 Won't start-no codes

frist MB 1997 C280 Won't start-no codes,i got a used c280 from a friend,he broke the chip in key,he was thinking that the black part of key was just for the alarm systems,he did not know that is was a chip for the Ignition,so he took the Ignition apart trying to find the problem,he couldn't fix it so the car set up up for 9mths,so i got the car now,I install the Ignition back ,got a new key from the dealer,now car will crank but wont start ,sometime it starts run for 1 or 2 sec and dies,also when it did run it was real Rough,can only one help,i was told that gas is bad from setting up for 9mths ,I dont think so

when installing a new EIS (ignition lock) assembly, it must be programmed into the car.. in other words.. its not just plug and play.. and its usually done with SDS (mb comp). was the programming of the ignition done?

keys comes programmed from mercedes when ordered... on your particular vehicle, the key shouldnt require additional programming.. however, your EIS or ignition does require programming after installation... perhaps you should take it to the dealer to see if they can program your ignition...
