  2. Replaced Tumbler but key won't turn. Solved

    W202 C-Class
    Was the ignition tumbler replaced with a new one with key OR a used one with a key? What year is the car? Dec
  3. Two questions

    W202 C-Class
    The only solution to that is a new or used lock with a key for the trunk. You still have a metal key blade for the door lock don’t you? Dec
  4. Two questions

    W202 C-Class
    My understanding of the issue is that lady’s central locking can lock and unlock the doors and trunk and he is worried that if the car battery or the central locking vacuum pump ever fails then he won’t be able to open the trunk. However, if his metal key blade is capable of unlocking and...

    Your ignition key blade will lock and unlock the trunk, it doesn’t matter if the cars trunk battery is dead or not. This is why there is a lock in the trunk, so you can manually unlock OR lock the trunk in the event of a dead battery. Leave the rest of the lock alone. Put a squirt of WD40 in...

    W202 C-Class
    No, that wouldn’t interest me at this time, you should join the various UK car forums over this side of the water, and you probably have done that already. Dec

    Do you still have the original factory key that came with the car, or did you wreck it? Dec
  9. W202 C200 1997?, Unknown problem (Alarm system)

    W202 C-Class
    Could be anything, faulty alarm could be involved, the Central Locking System Vacuum Pump that does the centeral locking, the front SAM, thats every thing under the bonnet fuse box. So off hand its hard to say, will the central locking lock and unlock via the remote key? You could take the...

    W202 C-Class
    When you jump start a car, sometimes this will set off the alarm, it thinks its being tampered with or the wiring is being messed with, however unlocking the car with the remote key should disarm the alarm or in some cases turning the key in the ignition will also disarm the alarm. However, if...

    In the UK, that’s the car horn, however in the US the use the car horn as the alarm siren, so, it looks like the do the same in SA.

    It should be in the same place and look same as photo, maybe the do things differently in SA, pity you did not take a picture of the area in question, that way I can see what you can see. Dec

    Maby all these problems are down to a very bad battery, how old is it do you know and is the car in daily use or is it only started very occasionally. Dec

    Can you detail whats not working on the car; Is this a Elegance or a Sport model. Is there Air Con. Do wipers, lights, indicators work, hazard flashers, rear heated, heater control/blower electric window, radio? What is not working or only working intermittently? If you point the key a few mm...

    Try replacing the batteries in the key first, last key in video. It probably is the alarm siren that’s at fault, best to remove it from the car; it has its own rechargeable batteries inside it so unplugging it may not fix the problem until the rechargeable batteries inside the siren are...

    Do you have the fuse designation charts , usually inside the fuse box lids or are the missing? Your boot fuse box looks different from mine, fuse #7 is missing, however things may be set up different in SA. You seem to have quite a few fuses missing compared to my fuse boxes, attachment #5...

    I don’t know if a SA car is set up the same as a UK car, but I would presume so, therefore the problem is likely to be the alarm siren, you can ; Remove it, unplug it or replace it, replacement cost of the siren is about £100 if you DIY, a mechanic would do the job in less than an hour. In the...
