Hello from Manchester

Hi everyone,

My first MB and I lose the key within a week. I've had no car for over a month now, wish I would of bought a normal car with a normal key!

I posted diagnostics which they charged me £70 for but have had no response. MB would not explain any thing, I even had to fight to get the print out which I uploaded.

Anyway, looking forward to working my way up to the new A-Class. Just make sure it doesn't come from Mercedes of Stockport. I've never had such poor service from any business.

Hello,
I had key problems and went to the service dept. at MB. They took my registration and drivers license, made themselves a copy, and presented me with a replacement key. I forget how much it cost as it was quite a while ago. But, that is how I solved that problem. They had my key on record by the VIN number. Thought it was great and a good service.

I'm guessing not from MB Stockport?

With me I had to recover the car to them, did you have to do that?

When the £195 key arrived it still didn't work (start error).

MB charged me £70 for diagnostic to tell me my key module needed replacing which is worth more than the car!!

How can a key module need replacing when it worked fine before I lost the key?

The transponder is not getting the message from the key so either the ignition switch is faulty or the key is.

Thank you very much Eric.

Here's my original post with pages of diagnostic errors. Maybe the car is doomed! ha
