hello i have an e- class electric key which maybe the same, if it is :- if you look at your key you will see a rough nobly curve near the silver edge of silver with a hole in it, push the rough bit up, and pull out a sketeton key.

I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!

you should be able to get in the trunk with a key.. I know the new car batteries are in the trunk, not sure if yours is. You may have to call a tow truck. They have tools to address this
