hi, all.
would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction here. Went to start car this morning (2001, 280E) and IR key failed to initialize the ignition. Just a quiet click then nothing. Steering remained locked, no ignition lights, wouldn't turn at all in fact. Car battery is almost new and fully charged, second key gave same symptoms. I am sure I have read of similar problems in some of these threads but can I find them?? (apart from a vague suggestion of a faulty EIS module).
As I say any help welcome as car is totally immobile.

If both keys stopped working at the same time and the battery is good, it sounds like something is wrong with your ignition switch to me. I don't know where those other threads are but you're right, this has been discussed before. Did you try all the key words in the search engine? And did you check the DIY Stickys at the top of the forum? Good Luck!
