"The key does not belong to vehicle" message

Asked by Feb 16, 2017 at 12:51 AM about the 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 350 4MATIC

Question type: General

On my 2008 C350, when I insert the key it won't start and displays "The key
does not belong to vehicle" message. Is it the key fob, or the ignition that's
bad?
