I have a 2004 Mercedes Benz c230 kompressor and my dilemma is i got up the Saturday before last and my tried to move my car but it would not start at all. Now, I know when my car is good to start is because when I turn the key to the on position the alert for met put on myself belt begins to beep. But this time when I do it there's no beep as i turn the key to the on poaction and the ignition doesn't engage. I've already tried the bypassing the ignition, checked the starter relay, tried jumping just to get it more power, i have even did the pressing the both lock and unlock button on the key itself and still nothing. My question is this...could the sensor play a role in it not starting or there a disconnection or short that causing the Problem? Please give me an answer as soon as you possibly can thank you

I have change it three times and after a while (2 to 3 weeks) it keeps making terrible sound when on load, like air condition is on or is on drive in traffic when on stop

I had an exhaust manifold gasket replacement. Now the fan is loud.

I have never had any problem with the key switch, but Saturday i turned the key switch and i got this short "cli" not even a full click into the motor turning over. I tried turning it back to the starting position and repeating the process of starting it again and this time no click, nothing. I tried troubleshooting like unhooking the battery in efforts of resetting the computer. And still nothing. I was told that when these cars need maintenance done to it the car will automatically shut down after the mileage has exceeded. Well, there's little wrench that pops up on my display window indicating that the maintenance is due in another 700 miles. Is this at all true because I really need help on this one.

fuel pump and filter replaced by dealer noies stil comes and go's

disconnected immobiliser but problem has continued. IT is actually a C200 MercBenz 1999 model.
Each time I start the engine, it will run for a while, then suddenly goes of with all features on dash board becoming on. immediately I try to restart the engine, it just crunks but do not start; hours later, the engine starts.

What should be the first things i should check, to make this a trustworthy car for my daughter. Owner said never any problems, had for 10 yrs.

When I parked and went inside it was okay. Had to boost it off when I tried to re-start it. Drove about five miles and parked in my garage. Turned it off and tried to re-start it(no luck). Let it sit over night and it started right up the next morning. I am hesitant about driving it, because I don't know when it is not going to start.

Couple of weeks, my car just cut off without warning. I have the power steering pump replaced; the starter and alternator have checked out to be fine. As well as the battery! Please help

I have a wrecked C230 with a perfect transmission, and I saw this E320 that has a bad transmission, I found it for $800. I was wondering if I would be able to switch the Transmission from my C230 to the E320.

hit a deep pothole hard and car continued to perform until the next day. checked fuse and relay, both good. No pressure at valve on the fuel rail. did not get sound from fuel pump even after direct 12V.


No pattern. Happened 2-3 times over a month. Outside temp in 70's, no rain. Battery drained unless car is driven in 2-3 days. Parked in office lot during day when this happens.

Besides the cold & wet this happens without pattern. Locks can be relocked, lights turned off but in 10 seconds or 10 minutes it may happen again.
