C300 Hybrid / W209 / W211
My lad just got his C220 back from local indie... key would open car but would not start car.... key checked and ok, so diagnosed as the control unit which is mounted in steering column which apparently needed hammer and chisel treatment then a new unit / master key from Mercedes for coding (passport / utility bills / V5 required to get coding by Mercedes)

Cost.... £350 for control unit + £150 labour including recovering car to workshop (couple of miles) :eek:

Thought the labour was pretty good tbh

my lad loves his car.... but not repair bill :D

Very common fault on the pre facelift W204.
