CLK320 Appears Immobilizer is not releasing
I have a CLK 320 Avantgarde Auto 2002. Has been a great car but the last couple of weeks I've had a problem starting it on the odd occasion. Engine turns over but its as if the immobilizer is still on . I can open and close the doors with the key fob no problem . I read the forum and a couple of people with other models say it could be the fob battery?
The odd thing is if I leave it for 5-10 minutes it often starts. But the engine warning light then comes on. However the car runs well and the engine light goes off and stays off once the ignition is shut off and doesn't come back on the next time its used .
Any help would be appreciated as I don't want to get rid of "the old lady" as she has become part of the family and has only done 60,000 miles
