Hi,

My C180 2000 electronic key does not turn when inserted. The central locking is working so the remote batteries seem to be fine as I am able to unlck the vehicle. Any suggestions would be great.


Thanks !!!!

This happened to me, and what is going on is that the ignition lock isn't unlocking when the key is inserted. The steering wheel lock should unlock though, and I found that if I forcefully yanked the wheel right, then hard left, then hard right and at the same time tried twisted the key, the iginition lock would unlock and the key would turn.

I went to the mechanic to have it looked at, but the problem didn't replicate, and it just went away and hasn't come back since. The problem has nothing to do with engine/outside temperature, I tried that.

Some C-Class comes with a third (flat) key non battery for service use. If you have this try to start the car with it.
