Are the batteries in properly? Are the battery connections clean? Do any of the other functions on the FOB work? This might be one for a Mercedes dealer. A phone call to one could generate a little customer PR with a simple solution!!

My key fob on my 2006 CLK is not working. The lock unlock feature will work sometime but not always. Do I need to replace the battery or get it reset. If so how much would this cost?


Sounds like the battery for sure. On German cars, especially high end ones... the battery is not usually replacable. You might try prying the fob open with a small flat screw driver or butter knife to see if the battery is soldiered to the board or if it can be removed. If it's soldiered you'll need a new fob. Contact the Merc dealer... this is the only place that can copy and program Merc keys... unless you can find a Merc specialty shop. Good luck.

No owners manual need one free, cant figure out alarm or fuse box


Is the alarm the factory alarm or is it aftermarket? If it is the factory unit try using the remote fob to turn it off (check batteries in the fob). If you lock the car door and reach in the window and open from the inside door handle it will trigger the alarm. Stick the key in the door lock and turn to unlock. It's been awhile since I looked at these Jeeps so memory may not be clear.

Mercedes e class cannot open the boot


I have a e320 2003 model, the same has happened to me. I wondered if it could be the fuse but couldn't find a fuse that managed the boot.....
This problem is identical to the other post "boot wont open electronicaly by the boot release latch above the number plate, the boot release button inside the car or the key fob! I have to use the manual key to mechanically open it now."
