E-420 Accessory / Ignition Problem
Hi Everyone, I hope someone will be able to help me with a problem I am having with my 1997 E-420 AMG Sport with 230,000 km (120,000 miles)
All the accessories (window, radio, seats, steering, roof, etc) that work in the ACC key position cease to work when the car is started, then they will not work at all until I turn the car off, remove the key wait for a second or two, re-insert the key and turn the key to the ACC position or ON position (it is never the same twice). But, never when the car is running. All other electrical components (lights, horn, climate control etc) operate normally.
I just assumed it was the ignition tumbler so I had it changed today but the problem still persists.
Thanks in advance for any advice you have.
