    Hi. My 1998 C180 petrol engined fails to start. The battery has been off the car for three months while its parked in long term car park in Spain. The battery is fully charged up, and the engine turns over, but fails to fire up. There is fuel in it. Would it be the immobilizer? I was hoping there may be a quick fix. Otherwise it will be a breakdown truck to the nearest M/B garage. Thanks for any advice. Smacky

    First thing to check is are you getting a spark and has the fuel gone off. Is the immobilizer light giving a steady flash or rapid blinks.

    Does the alarm switch flash when the car is locked with the remote?
    Did the alarm switch flash when locked 3 months ago, before this issue?

    Thanks for your reply. I have passed your info. on to the car park guy. If he can't start it then he will arrange a tow to MB garage. Thanks Smacky.
