    Hi
    basically inside the car there will be a main hub or main sensor these are normally black in colour and sit up high normally around the rear view mirror. I am not 100% on that model as I realy work on them but other mercs are normally around the rear view mirror. inside the this sensor or behind the plastic cover they sometimes move about so and then it becomes hard to open the doors very much like when someone stands in front of the TV when you ware trying to turn over with the remote. It is the receiving end you will need to realign.

    Regards

    i have a 2007 c230 and its doing the same thing with only being able to unlock from pointing at the driver door. the windows are tinted but not dark. you can still see through. I got a new key today and it still does the same thing. The Mercedes dealer told me that certain models will only unlock like that. It doesn't seam right to me

My problem is that key remote control works only very close to the car i change the battery still the same problem i don't have a spare key to test also petrol door lock and unlock not working wit


Your keyless remote is equipped with 2 different systems. There is the RF system (long range, lock control only) and the IR system (short range, locks and convenience features such as remote window roll-up and roll-down). It sounds like your RF system isn't working. The only way to test the system, that I know of, is with a Mercedes scanner. It is likely a bad remote.
