Did you try all 3 keys? You may be using the Valet key which will not open the glovebox.

2005 slk350 glove box is locked. how do you open it.


This is a common problem with these cars, the glove box has a solenoid that locks and unlocks it, this is the problem, you will need to lock and unlock the doors with the door button not fob, you will need to do this several times until the glove box unlocks.

This sounds like yours is on the way out but if you lock and unlock a few times you should be able to get it to unlock, you may have to do this a few times, i know its time consuming but the lock will unlock.

When you get the glove box open, there are two reasons for this problem, first it may just need a little wd40 sprayed on the latch and arm, or the solenoid is bad.

The way to figure this out is with the box open spray solenoid arm and latch and then hit the lock and unlock a few times as you watch to see it move, again you may need to hit lock and unlock a few time to get it moving, once moving you will see the movement and then spray a little more, If the WD40 works then the latch will move with door locks but if you still get get the latch to move then you will need to replace the solenoid.
The last thing may be a relay, there is a relay that controls the latch but most times its latch or wd40 being the problem.

There are TSB"s on this problem and if you bought this car from the dealer i would see if they would repair it at no cost to you, its worth a try.

I can not open my back seats. The trunk release will not work and the key will not open the trunk


this is only a suggestion but some cars have a safety feature wich to keeps people from snooping around your car that has access to your keys. make sure by reading your owners manual that there is not a button like in your glove box or center console box you may have mistakenly hit. I do not know about mercedes but for instance toyota provides you with what is called a vallet key wich is a third key wich will only allow you to open the door and you start the car not allowing glove box or trunk entry like a said this is only a suggestion it very well could be a broken cable or an electrical malfunction. good luck
