Hi! Sounds like the key needs to be coded again, take all relvant details i.e. chassis vin number, Registration document (Title) and key to your local Mercedes Dealership and hopefully they'll rec-code it for youor replace it.
Good Luck and a Happy New Year to You and your family.

Hi there
I had something similar on my merc
but yours sounds similar.
the fact that you say the steering lock no longer works is very worrying, most times the key not going past position 1 is due to the steering lock being actuated and the pressure in it has to be released before the key will turn, you will have to go from lock to lock the find where the steering lock actuates when this happens follow my wiggle method of turning the steering wheel slightly when the steering lock is on the disengage it. ie keep trying the key whilst wiggeling the steering wheel.
hope that helps

Did you try jacking up the car at the front then wiggle the steering as you turn the key? Did you try a spare key? Spray inside the mechanism with WD40. Try putting the key in at different depths and turning.
The lock cylinder is a replace only item.

Why won't my ignition key turn over and my steering wheel is locked in place at the sametime?


I'm assuming you mean your key wont turn in the ignition. first off check to make sure the car is in park. then what you gotta do is put in the key and put a little pressure as if turning but dont turn too hard, then even though the steering wheel is locked you will have to try to move it a little, if you parked with your tires turned then you will want to try to turn the wheel in the same direction, (even locked you should be able to move it about a half inch) you will have to turn the wheel hard but it should move enough to allow the key to turn, you may have to jiggle the key a little in the ignition but it should eventually turn, just remember not to try turning the key too hard, the extra force wont make it go but can cause the key to break. this tends to happen when you turn the car off andthe steering wheel gets locked if the wheels are turned hard in either direction. also if multiple attempts at this still dont work, try taking the key out and turning it over and trying again. Even though both sides of the key are identicle, because of wear on the key and the ignition, sometimes when the wheel locks the ignition, it will only turn if the key is put in a certain way. Hope this helps, good luck

Smart key not turning in c240 all batteries were check.


On Mercedes, and most German cars for that matter, you can only turn the key to the start position once. Then you have to turn the key completely off to turn it back to the start position again.

On almost all cars the steering wheel can also prevent you from turning the key, if the wheel is jammed to one side or the other. If you giggle the steering wheel left and right while turning the key, you can usually unjam it.

Hope this helps. Good luck and have a nice evening. Peter

My ford explorer wont start my key goes to access but when i turn it to start nothing not even a clicking noise


ok, Make sure the battery connections are clean, remove and clean to make sure. Then, follow the battery + cable to a solenoid. check those connections. The small wire is the one from the key. That is what cranks the motor. Make sure the vehicle is in neutral and try again. If nothing, then jump the batt+ to the cable on the other side of the solenoid. The starter will crank. Then, jump the + to the little oost. The engine will crank and if your key is on it will start. Always have someone in the drivers seat when doing this..... Safety is a must when out of vehicle. Good Luck, Ned.

Key won't turn and steering wheel is locked


Have you tried wiggling the steering wheel at the same time as you turn the key? Have you tried pushing on the gear shift lever, to make sure it's all the way in park?
