I there is a lock cylinder in the driver's door or door handle of your Mercedes Vito then you will be able to unlock the door manually using the key. If you are having trouble with this then contact Mercedes and they will explain to you how to unlock it.

Key will not physically unlock door only with remote it will unlock why wont key unlock driver door?


if your key worked before but doesn't now your probably looking at a worn out lock cylinder or a worn out key. more than likely its the lock cylinder. you can buy a replacement lock cylinder but it will have to be keyed to match the original key by a locksmith or a knowledgeable parts guy may know how

1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard
Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder
each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press
the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming
procedure will not be successful.


5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side
power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.
