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!

Posotive can be found in hood driver side next to fuse box. It is a small rectangle box. You can hook negative to any solid ground on the car.

In the bonnet on the the left side there is a small box with two wires. Put a jumper on the positive wire and just ground the negative. That is connected to the battery and you can open the boot to access the battery.

If you look at your remote key fob you will see a small metal "silver part" this should pull out of your keyfob, this is an override key, if you look on the car door where the handle is you will see a thin slot to put this in, lock then unlock the car, this will disable the dead locks and you will be able to open the boot.
This may sound a bit crazy if you have not noticed the silver part on the keyfob before, so do get back to me if you are unsure what I mean and I can send you a picture, if the metal override key is missing then you have trouble getting in the boot.
Hope this helps, like I said do get back to me if you are unsure.
