This sounds like a broken wire inside the corrugated tubing for the boot/trunk loom located by the right hand hinge on the lid

The rear hatch on my 2006 buick rendevous wont open with the button on the door but it will open with the remote button on the key fob


Visit an on-line parts supplier and purchase a new switch/touchpad for inside of the rear handle. Local parts supplier probably won't have it. You can replace it yourself. I did when I owned one of these part pits.

Have you tried your spare remote, it may just be the remote button is defective. If no then the electric latch motor is defective or some how jammed

Mercedes c class 2001 elegance, key fob not working everytime its pressed. I have had the batteries checked and they are still working fine, any advice as to what is causing this?


Most likely needs to be re matched to the car.

Two bits of info off the net for you

C CLASS (1993-1997), E CLASS (1995-1997), SLK (1996-)
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds manually lock or unlock the vehicle using the passenger's door lock or the boot lock.
Alternative method
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds, switch the ignition ON.
Alternative method
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds, turn the ignition switch to position II.


and

1. Place key in ignition lock and turn to position 2 [all ignition lights on]
2: Turn key to off position and remove from ignition.
3. Within 10 seconds:
3a: press the Close [Lock] button and hold it down
3b: while the Close button is still depressed simultaneously press the Open [Unlock] button. Press and release the Open button 5 times [still holding the Close button down]
3c: Release both the Close and the Open buttons at the same time, and immediately push any of the two Open buttons once [i.e. either the Open doors or the Open Tailgate]

This information is for the resetting of a previously synchronised key to match the security system after batteries have been removed or replaced. This information does not work with new keys which it seems must be taken to a person with a key synchronisation device [or a super-ripoff-expensive MB dealer]

hope this helps

Boot on passat estate wont open with key or remote


The opening of the boot by key or remote is done via an electric motor,you may have a faulty motor or you may have water ingress through the boot handle which has corroded the terminals, this is quite common.
