1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Suddenly, the doors won't unlock, the trunk remains locked, the fuel door is locked, the sun roof doesn't work, no turn signals, and no windshield wipers. The metal portion of the key gets me into the car, and the ignition works so it can be driven. The lights and AC works, but that's it. What happened, and how do I fix it?
I don't have emotional ties to this car, but I don't have a lot to spend either ($5000 budget). I want something similar. Should I risk buying a used with lesser miles ($3500-$5000) not knowing the history of the car or do I replace the tranny and keep the one I have. Advise welcome
When I Put my key in There is a click under the steering wheel But it will not turn And it will beep occasionally
It clicks under the steering wheel when I put the key in and it sometimes beeps when I put it in too
Bought this used car and have had the hood pop up on me while driving, many times now. It does not happen all the time. Yesterday I had my 74 yr. old mom with me on a trip to Miami and it happened 3 times on the expressway at 75 MPH. Now it may not happen again for days or whenever.. That is what is so scary. It seems that there is no cause for it to release, and it is being securely closed after every incident.
Was diagnosed at dealership, was told to get new one coz of age and mileage (229,000)not worth fixing it. The car really runs good except engine light sometimes come on. Thank you.
When I turn the car off and restart it, it works fine. Could this be electrical as oppose to the transmission?
The engine actually shakes the car. The car will not move no matter what gear. Check engine light is on. My mechanic ran the code, and it suggested it is a bad anti-theft sensor, and that the car shaking and failure to engage gear is actually the expected result (can't steal the car!)
Have you heard of this before?
This is very disconcerting at night. The radio panel lights up if radio on.
