You’ll find the push button near the same place you would usually find the ignition in a typical vehicle. When using this button, you can think of it like this: each press equates to one key turn of the ignition. Here is how it works…

One push (foot on brake): Starts the engine. With the car stopped, this will also turn off the car.

One push (foot off brake): Puts the car into accessory mode.

A second push (foot off brake): Turns on the lights, dashboard instrument cluster and other electrical components.

A third push (foot off brake): Turns everything off.

How to Start Your Mercedes-Benz With a Key Instead

If, for some reason, you would rather start your Mercedes-Benz using the key, there is a way to do so. That said, if you’re having problems with your push button start feature, be sure to bring it in for a service appointment.

In order to start your Mercedes-Benz with the key instead of the push button, you will need to access the ignition. This is done easily, as it is located right behind the push button. Simply remove the button and insert the key instead, and you’re all set to go.

As you can see, learning how to use the push button start feature in your Mercedes-Benz is a breeze. But, if you run into any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at World Wide Motors.
