Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Is this common? What can we do to remedy this without having to spend $150 for a new fob.
Key fobs only work when the button is pressed so I suspect that the switch may be faulty and is stuck in the pressed position

Could it be the key just needs re-coding? maybe you are worrying to much as £177 would be about right as that would need coding etc., Try phoning your local Merc dealer or take the key and V5 to them for coding (Hopefully)

You have to seperate the front of the fob casing by sliding or prising at the side this will then reveal the batteries. You can get replacement batteries from most garages or your MB dealer (who will probably fit them as well)

Testimonial: "Unable use either of standard fobs for months. You have solved the problem at a stroke. Many thanks.One works.I must find the other!!"
SOUNDS LIKE A BAD KEY FOB..BUT BEFORE YOU GO WASTING ALL YOUR MONEY ON ANOTHER ..TAKE THE BATTERY BACK OUT LOOK INSIDE WHERE THE BATTERY SITS AND MAKES CONTACT..ARE THE LITTLE CONTACTS TOUCHING THE BATTERY
