Hi newbie here from NC,
My 2002 C320 will not start. Was running great until it sat for a week. All lights , windows as well as everything works but will not engage starter. Can't get it out of park as well.
It has a new battery showing 12.7 amps and was starting fine now it seems the inferred key isn't being read. All fuses have been checked in all areas. Is there a way to trick the antenna system for the inferred key or a bypass method. Thanks any advised would be appreciated.

If the key works in the ignition switch to turn it, then the key is being recognized. If not, then you may have a bad key or bad ignition switch. Try your spare key.

What he said.

Do you have foot on brake when trying to get out of park?

The battery reading is in Volts, not Amps, they measure different things.

Infra-red part is used to do the "windows down" at close range to door handle. Does it still unlock doors or no?

From a distance it is RF.

Do you have a spare?
