Question about 2004 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz M Class
You have a d.a.s. prob;em( driver assist system). For some reason there is a communication between your transponder(smart key) and your vehicle control modules. It is a very complicated system and cannot be properly diagnosed without a s.d.s.machine.(star diagnostic system). I would first try another key and see if the problem persists. If the car starts fine with another key then you know the problem is a defective key. Either way you will have to order a new key from the dealer and have it programmed with a s.d.s. machine when it arrives. If the car starts I would take it and have it scanned for codes.
