Hi all, thankyou for the add, I have a 2007 w211 e280cdi, the key fails to turn in the ignition, sometimes it will turn 1st time sometimes you have to try many times, once the key turns and I start the car everything is perfect, iv tried the steering lock emulator and that didn't help at all, iv also tried the other key and its exactly the same, if anyone can repair this close to St Helens Merseyside could they please get back to me with a price and availability?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Steve.

Do you have a big bunch of keys? Often the weight of keys on a key ring can cause issues.
Also how old is the battery? A low battery can sometimes give these symptoms.

Hi iv tried it with the spare key on its own too and it's still the same, the car battery has only just been replaced.

Thankyou for your reply I really appreciate it.
