W210 ignition problem
My car: W210 V6 260cc year 2000

When I insert the key in, there is usually a suction sound and then I can start the car. Lately I insert the key and there isn't such a sound (steering lock problem according to my mechanic). I have to wait awhile and insert several times before I manage where there is a suction sound and I can definitely start the car when there is the suction sound. But on occasion it was hours before I can start it.

I had send this car to 2 mechanics and one send the whole set to KL for repairs (I live in Ipoh) but no solution. The only solution now is to buy a used ignition system or a new one. Even then there is no guarantee it will work.

I wonder if anyone here can help me. This problem had given me headache for the last 2 months.

Re: W210 ignition problem
if u live in ipoh, just take ur key fob to
a key shop in gunung rapat. just the row near 7-eleven
b4 the gunung rapat wet market.
did a replacement key for rm1200 as my ori went kaput.
just like u mention but mine lansung cannot masuk n turn.
luckily the eis tak kaput.
if ur key still ok, then they`ll reprogramm it n cost
lesser. niway mine is the w203 n i think is the same as yours.

p/s mine bcoz missus drop the key many time, langsung
takda signal coming out.

Re: W210 ignition problem
Thank you Mal for reply.

It is confirmed by two MB workshop that it is not the key. Both the main key and spare key also has problem. The problem is the ignition and steering lock unit. Some times it work, some time it doesn't.

By the way, you don't need to pay RM1200 for a spare key. Get in touch with me if you have the same problem. I know where to get it done for a fraction of the price.

Hi 3star,

Based on my experience, most likely your steering lock unit has started to give problem and it will come a time when it will malfunction permanently, whereby it is unable to lock / unlock.

Hope this helps.

yes bro,
i know you can make a clone key fob for a fraction of the price that i paid.
but mine the original key oledi kong, no signal whatsoever.
so the locksmith,has to come to my house,
dismantle the eis unit, take back to his shop, programme
the new key to my old eis unit,
take back to my house n refit the eis unit. its not
just a matter of cloning ur ori key to a new key, which
is a simple task.
niway if ur steering lock is not functioning properly,
its either ur key fob or ur eis is not functioning
properly.
its very,very rare to have both not functioning.
its a miscommunication between both of
them.
i think both model, w210 n w203 shared the same key system. hehehe

cherrio.

"Could the battery be low? There is a threshold voltage below which the ECU won't attempt to start the car. However, there is still enough voltage to light the dashboard and headlights.

Another possibility is that the TCU thinks the transmission is not in park. Do you spill anything on the console recently?"

can try refer to this tread
