99 SLK crank, no start sometimes..HELP!
This car is driving me nuts, I have a 99 SLK 230. The car will crank, but not start sometimes. Put the key in the ignition and it will keep spinning even with my fingers off the key, I have to manually bring the key back to stop it. Replaced ignition switch and it seem to take care of the problem for about a week, then it did the same thing. Sometimes it will crank and run, but will quit, sometimes start, sometimes not. You can let it sit and it will start and sometimes not. What is the surround that goes around the tumbler(it has a wire on it and goes behind the instrument cluster)..if you pull it off, the car will spin and quit..when you put it back on the car will continue to spin..if you wiggle it sometimes the car will start..maybe just coincidence. Any help would be appreciated.
