I had the same problem with my 1989 e300 4matic and found that spraying WD40 into the Key hole fixed the problem, hope this works for you..

I have an '85 280SL and had the same problem. Try unlocking the car from the driver's side using the interior lock/unlock lever. On my car this unlocks the doors, trunk and the fuel door. Once done, you need only push on the trunk lock and it should open. If not, make sure you are not using a valet key as these will only open the doors.

    I have the same problem, where I bought my car 1989 merceds 300e from a family member and it didn't come with a trunk key. I tried the ignation and the door key didn't work,, I push on the lock button of the trunk and the trunk opens. What is it that you mean by the interior lock/unlock lever?

    You might be my answer. Please explain.. and location since I don't understand..
    Thanks.

Remote key


Yes - Sometimes when the battery is replaced the key program can be corrupted. It would be a starting point to have the key reprogrammed just to eliminate it as a source of trouble.
