It worked. What could be wrong with the dashboard that my kasim bypassed? He couldn't explain to my understanding.

He said there is a supply from the dash board. He connected a wire from the fuse box or brain box and connected it to the battery end.

When ordering your C350, confirm that the Electronic ignition system(EIS) and/or the Electronic steering lock(ESL) issue has been resolved because its a well known fact that its the part of the w204 that fails the most. You can do a google search on EIS and ESL failure for W204. I have my w204 with MB place for the past 2months and apart from the cost of replacing, it takes ages for the parts to arrive because they can only be sourced directly from Mercedes Benz in Germany. If you have confirmed that the parts have been replaced then you can go ahead and buy the car cos you will definitely enjoy that ride.

I hope you have an updated information on the EIS/ESL issues? cheers.

The alternator is being checked right now but I don't know what techniques of checking to look out for. Another thing I noticed is dat when I put a new battery, The spark from the neutral is high without key ignition and doors are all locked with remote key. Please I need help, The car just killed another 100Amps battery
Do you have a tracker fixed in your car?
If yes does it have an independent battery or uses your car battery?
If it uses your car battery that might be the problem or your front seat modules are faulty

New Steering rack for a 1997 Benz? That would be difficult to find any where. If you need toks(not Nigerian used) Ordinary is about 40k, while 4matic is 75k (All Abuja prices).

I don't like the smart keys. Hence I would not advice a Merc without traditional keys. Not worth the TROUBLE!

Which keys are traditional keys and smart keys?
Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by angels09: 2:19pm On Dec 10
METAL KEYS, ELECTRONIC CHIP KEYS RESPECTIVELY.

Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by kingreign: 4:34pm On Dec 10
Go for any modern Benz. He is refering to Older models. Yes older models maybe less troublesome due to less electronics, but they'll fail more frequently due to age, wear and tear of parts over time. And to get those parts may be a challenge if you live in some parts of the country.

I WILL DISAGREE IF IT IS GOING TO BE HIS ONLY CAR OR IF HE IS A TRAVELER ...BENZ SMART KEYS CAN FAIL WITHOUT NOTICE AND COSTS A SUM TO FIX...DEPENDING ON LOCATION.

Not the keyless go Benz keys circa 99-date I know.
There must had been an ish prior to its failure. Either it dropped, key in ignition with battery disconnected and reconnected, or some EIS malfunction.
Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by praxisnetworks: 5:03pm On Dec 10
ALL OF WHICH CAN CAUSE SOME PRETTY DELAYS AND LEAVE YOU STRANDED

WHAT PISSES ME OFF MOST IS THAT IT CANNOT BE HOTWIRED!

Reason I ask is because all Mercedes have the metal keys these days. I don’t think you can find any benz from 2003 without the metal keys, I may be wrong.
Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by SmartchoicesNG: 11:26pm On Dec 10
wrong..they all have plastic keys...with microchips inside

What is the difference between the smart keys and the conventional keys?

conventional keys is what your vboot, w202 c class have... metal keys ok?

smart keys started with the facelift versions of the w210 and w202... they a made of microchips enclosed in a plastic material... they are capable of failing at no notice.... if they fall...which is inevitable, or if you remove the car ba3 with the keys inserted, or if rains or water enters them....


once they fail bro, forget it, if your spare key is not around (usually the case)... there is nothing you can do except to get a programmer to code a new key for you.... tokunbo short key is around 8k-12k before programming, new is 18-20k before programming, a complete package may cost you between 20k to 45k for keys replacement.... and heaven help you if you are in your village when it happens....


note you can not join wires under the steering wheels to start the vehicle...nah! even as the owner.... unlike those with conventional keys!

So you won’t buy a Benz if it doesn’t have traditional keys?

Not as my only car or a traveling car.

But what's a Benz that doesn't travel? Is that a real Benz? Answer is NO.

Two of my neighbors have been deprived of their cars for close to a month combined... even after parting with 80k.... Funny the cars have no issues except for the keys!

But for the w 204 with eis fault, no Benz smart key would ever fail without giving signs except the driver is the kind that doesn't pay attention to little changes. It cannot just suddenly fail. And besides the latest model cla, glc and Co are equipped with push button. People are embracing keyless and smart driving now. If you still insist on conventional keys in 2017, then don't buy recent models. Even a 1998 c class w202 and e class w210 have some with smart keys. Bottom line, they never fail without giving signs
