Mercedes c280 1996 cranks but wont start. Can I disable the immobizer?

Asked by Nov 20, 2016 at 11:02 AM about the 1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I point the remote to the rear view mirror, the red lights blink, but the green lights also blink. I was told the problem is the immobiliser. I do not car about the alarm or anti theft system. Can I disable it?

1 Answer

The immobilizer was not working because the Overload Protection Relay was bad. This is a $41 part I ordered from Parts Geek. Once I replaced it, the car started right up!
