Dealership might be able to tell you. You may just need new key fob. Some locksmiths have the equipment to check these and can reset them.

SOURCE: Gear stuck in park, how to remove center console,

Sounds like your shift lockout is not disengaging when you depress the brake. I don't know about Mercedes but the general way to do it is the solenoid in the console that is actuated by depressing the brake could be bad however i believe the power supplied to the solenoid comes directly from the brake switch. Can't answer your center console question sorry.

Power lock remote on 2007 forenza not working

Check the light on the remote fob. Does it light up when you press the button? It will light for only a part of a second.
Sometimes the transmitter stops working for no reason and there is no repair, you have to buy a new remote fob, or in the case of some vehicles, you have to buy a new key and have the agents activate the key, then you can activate the remote with a special procedure.

The dash board says key fob battery 1 is low ... what is it ? what should I do?

The push button devise you use to lock and unlock the doors is your Key fob. It has battery's to make it work, they are inside the fob. Think of it as a TV remote, they use battery's to send the signal to the Tv. Same for your Key Fob uses battery's to send a signal to the car to lock / unlock the doors.

My 1998 Acura CL key fob won't work to lock or unlock the doors, but the battery is good. Not sure what to try next.

these key fobs go bad often poeple think they just need programing but thats not the case, the board inside the fob sometimes the soider breaks free and doesnt make a good connection, the most common spot is where the battery contact are, take a good look at that area and you may be able to fix it by re soidering it, hope this helps.

I cant get the central locking to work on a saab 9 3 2003 model. i replaced the battery.It made no diffrence.cant find a fuse on the car for it.

Take the battery out of the key fob and stand close to the car, or sit inside, and put the new battery back in and try need to be close to the car so the security unit picks up the signal from the key fob. Good luck

Kia Rio 1.5 diesel Factory alarm,car horn honking,side indicators flashing,unable to start the car. When I arm the car with the fob and unlock the door with the key then open the door the horn starts...

The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep

1998 3.0 Acura CL Shut off electronically

There is a known issue with the ignition switch on the 98 Acura CL 3.0. The ignition was recalled by the manufacturer. This happened to my 98 CL as well. Since it was a recall, Acura may replace the ignition switch for you at no cost, not sure though as they announced the recall in 2003 I believe.
