Hi all.

I already have one thread live at the moment regarding a Wiring Diagram for my CLK 3209, W208.

I know have another, while trying to investigate my cigarette lighter and illumination bulb not working I have run down my battery, I cannot open the boot lid to get at the barrety to re charge it, my door key does not work either, has anyone got any ideas as to open the boot lid or charge the battery from another point ??

There should be a positive and negative terminal in the engine bay for jump starting, you can connect a charger to these.

Common problem; you need to press the handle at the same time as turning the key blade.

If the key turns counter clockwise in boot lock, to about the 11 o’clock position then the lock is not seized.

  • Turn key to about 11 o’clock position.
  • While key in 11 o’clock position, push the key/lock inwards.
  • Boot should open.
