Boot switch will no open it remoute will not open it and the boot button will not open it. unable to open roof to try gain access that way 2000 clk230 cheers


Hi

I am assuming this is a mercedes car not van as you have not stated what model or year??

If you look on your remote keyfob there is a shiny silver metal part, most owners do not know this but if you pull that it will slide out of the key remote, this is an override key in case the doors and boot will not open, if you look on the boot lock below the mercedes badge there is a small hole for this key, that will open it.

what model what year?

Regards
Dan

call tow truck so they can use a slim jim to open the door without power then have him jump it and take it to auto zone and have the battery tested for free and the altanator, may need cleaning or something got left on.

Flat battery


No, you dont need to break windows. use the mechanical key that is slotted in the end of the normal electronic gizmo key to open the drivers door. It doesn't work on the boot lid even though it should so you need to energise the electric boot release from unde rthe bonnet as described elsewhere in this solution.

Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery


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!

Car key got broke inside car door


Try spraying some type of lubricant like wd40 in the key hole and using a small metal pick to dig the broken part out. You can also use skinny flat piece of metal like a nail file and place a strong magnet on the end of it with any luck it will grab the broken piece of key. Good Luck
