Change the remote, If still not working see the receiver sensor in the car.
The remote should send a signal to the receiver.Just like the Tv.

If you simply replaced the battery in the key, it fell out of synch with the vehicle, there is a procedure in your owners manual to resynch the key to the system. If you follow the procedure, and the key does not work, the system may have become disabled, and you need to go through the provedure again to enable it and synch the key.

If that still does not get it synched, you will likely need to take it to Benz dealership to have them synchronize it. Should run around 50 bucks.

If the car starts with the key but won't unlock the doors then you need to resync them. Make sure the batteries are good or just replace. The resync is shown near the back pages of your owners manual. Basically to resynce you insert key turn to position 2 then remove. Press and hold lock all and press lock 5 times within 10 seconds then release all buttons and press the lock key one more time. It varies from model to model and year to year but is covered by your manual. And yes this is one of the few things that cost $50 at the stealerships.

SOURCE: Can not open the door with remote key and the key

If the battery is dead or so weak it won't be able to run the circuit inside the key. When the key is plugged in the start, it won't emit the signal to be recognized, the engine will not start.
1- There are 2 lithium batteries in the remote key to be replaced.
2- Is it possible that you pick up the remote key from another Mercedes car in the house since they are all look like.
3- Since you can open the door manually it means the key is correct. However, kids in the house and swap keys from FOB from its original ones.
4- After replacing battery then it's still not working, before order a new FOB, I advise you to read this link, it may help you save a couple hundred dollars

I have lost my smart remote key for my Mazda CX-9 2011. Can I program a new one myself?


You may need 2 keys to do this, possibly just one. My source does not specify if 1 key will work but here is the procedure i found
With two programmed advanced keys
  1. Bring the programmed advanced keys (2) and a unprogrammed advanced key into the vehicle.
  2. Close all doors.
  3. Insert the supplementary key into the ignition key cylinder. NOTE:
  • Complete the procedures up to Step 7 within 30 s after the supplementary key is inserted.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. Press the UNLOCK button on advanced key 1.
  3. Press the UNLOCK button on advanced key 2.
  4. From the ignition switch in the ON position, switch the ignition switch in the order indicated below.
  • ACC->ON->ACC->ON->ACC->ON
  1. Open the driver-side front door, press the door switch twice , and then close the door. NOTE:
  • After Step 3 is completed and the advanced key programming mode is activated, the door lock actuator operates to lock, and then operates to unlock.
  • If the door lock actuator does not operate, repeat the procedure from Step 2.
  1. Press the UNLOCK button on the unprogrammed advanced key twice . NOTE:
  • After Step 8 is completed and the advanced key is programmed, the door lock actuator operates to lock, and then operates to unlock.
  1. If programming more advanced keys, remove the supplementary key once, and then repeat the procedure from Step 2.

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.

Toyota matrix remote not unlocking car - battery is new


Check to see if your central locking still works on all doors and that you can also operate the driver's door central lock motor.
This can sometimes be an issue with the door lock motors themselves and not necessarily the key.

Central locking not operaiting


Was the car battery disconnected before this central locking problem.Also is the central locking system operated by remote.If yes,then is the remote battery new or old.If the battery in remote is old then try with new battery.Also if the central locking is controlled by a push button in the car then it can be the problem with push button switch .The switch on driver side is got short.It has to be checked with meter to confirm the fault.Apply a direct 12 volt external battery to the switch and check if the central locking is getting done.Also confirm if you can lock the doors manually by using a car key.If you are not able to lock the door with key manually then its faulty door latch.But if the door lock and unlock manually with out any problem then this problem is related to central locking switch or the remote.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed
