I m a locksmith and had the same problem
What you do is:
HOld The handle up while you turn the key to the opening direction, it will feel as though it may bend the key but it will not.
keep pulling the handle until the button pops up it works I did it

You have to get under the bonnet first? There is a way to get in there, but you have to have another car there so you can see what you are doing. Or a slick mercedes mechanic. Some cars have a tiny hole in the front that will trip the bonnet with a thin rod pushed straight in. Then you can get the battery charged up, or jumped or replaced.

Testimonial: "thank u"
Oops wrong spot.
For those that cant afford to give their old lambo away when the keyfob dies... Look at the front of the key, theres a little indentation. Use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the two halves apart.
It should pull apart like this:
You will be working with the part without the key blade. Stick your two thumbs in the channel the key blade folds into and pull the lower half apart.
Replace the battery and reassemble. The car will now need to relearn the key. Remove the plastic key hole cover by lifting the door handle slightly and pulling upwards. Once in the car, stick the key into the ignition and turn the car to on without starting it. Press the unlock button on the key fob. You should be good to go.
