Hi
Have a 2009 C220CDI Estate Sport.
I insert the key, foot on brake, turn the key and all the correct dashboard lights come on but nothing. I can do this 2-3 times before it starts to turn over. When warm it starts first time.
Its not particularly cold when it happens and does not happen all the time
Appreciate any guidance as sure this has happened to others
thanks
Mike

️agree with what John has said have you checked the battery the cold kills em off and then they struggle to start in the cold weather - they might just have enough life in em to start when it’s a little warmer

Just been advised that it appears to be an ignition problem-possible known for Mercedes-where fails to communicate and therefore possible need for new unit. It is now going to a specialist to confirm
