2001 Mercedes Benz 220cdi 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 164000 miles
please advice me I have the above car and have been experiencing problems starting it up for a few months. When it wouldnt start I took it to a garage and said it wont start it has a problem with the key or the barrel. He said the key is fine and charged £600 for a new barrel. After this my key wouldnt recognice the barrel even after re-programming he is now saying the key has died and I need a new key. He says that when the barrel went it took the keys electronics with it. Is this possible. Could the fault have been with t he key in the first instance and I have just paid for a new barrel.
