My wife's 2003 Yukon wouldn't lock the rear doors or hatch, but it would unlock. My problem was the lock relay was bad. There are two relays, one for lock and one for unlock. They are located in the fuse panel on the left side of the console. Open the drivers door and you will see a cover that pops off. Behind this are several fuses and relays. Consult your manual to see which is the lock and unlock relays. They are side by side on a 2003. They pull straight out. I replaced both and they were around $10 apiece at any auto store.

Check inside the trunk, there should be a switch. It MAY be the switch is set not to open by remote. Once flipping the switch, it should work fine.
Hope this helps, Good luck!

If the battery is dead or so weak it won't be able to run the circuit inside the key. When the key is plugged in the start, it won't emit the signal to be recognized, the engine will not start.
1- There are 2 lithium batteries in the remote key to be replaced.
2- Is it possible that you pick up the remote key from another Mercedes car in the house since they are all look like.
3- Since you can open the door manually it means the key is correct. However, kids in the house and swap keys from FOB from its original ones.
4- After replacing battery then it's still not working, before order a new FOB, I advise you to read this link, it may help you save a couple hundred dollars
