I own a 99 mercedes e430 my key remote will not turn ignition and the steering isn't locked u can turn it both directions freely also the drivers side brake light keeps blowing what could be the problem any suggestions how to fix it

Comments

You have two issues going on here.

The key tumbler / ignition lock is defective.

The problem with the brake light keeps blowing is due to a short. Open up the trunk lid and inspect both brake lights. The sockets are too close to the body metal that can cause shorts.

Hope this helps!

I've looked up parts n pricing seems some pieces are separate that make up the whole part what all will I need to.fix this problem
