My 1998 210 has the electronic three button key fob. The key I was using, sometimes when you put the key into the ignition switch nothing happened, it did not unlocking the steering lock & so could not turn on ignition. Most times it worked ok but the malfunction slowly got more frequent. I tried using the spare key & it works perfect every time. So it is obviously a problem with the key.
Today I tried the original key again & it wont work at all. The buttons for locking & unlocking work perfect.
My question is, can it be repaired or do I need buy a new key.

Malcolm.
It may be a few weeks before I get back to Uk as its the key for this car in Russia that is the problem. I will contact you for your address nearer the time I am expected back to Uk & post it to you.
Thanks

Yes you can check the key for unlocking problems, but not for the key turning in the ignition switch
