Help please! C200 not starting up.
Having problems with Mercedes C200. Forgive my ignorance, but I really am totally clueless.
Car does not respond at all to electronic key. There's a red light which flashes briefly when I push the buttons on the key, and I read somewhere that this indicates there's no problem with the battery (true/false?).
Anyway I called up a Mercedes dealer, and was told to try changing the battery, and if that didn't help, to arrange for the car to be sent in.
I've been checking online on how to change the key battery, but oddly enough couldn't find anything. Closest thing I got were some videos on Youtube, but my key seems to be different from the ones on there.
The keys in the videos seem to have a metal key which slides out of the electronic key, which is then used to open up the electronic key. My key doesn't have this metal bit, so I don't know how to even get the key open.
No spare key either.
The key also does not turn in the ignition. I also read somewhere that battery or not, the key should be able to turn (true/false?)
Any help is greatly appreciated! Really need the car working ASAP.
