SOURCE: mercedes slk 230 1998 locks all doors with remote

this sounds like a door switch not switching if you shut the door and left your kyes inside the car the door locks would pop up so you cant look yourself out,,,(but you can?) my money is on a door switch,, give them all a good swilling with WD40 to free them off if this dont fix it then its the car alarm it needs to be reprogramed to the kye fob and also fit a new battery to the kye fob at the same time people often forget how much work the kye fob needs to do and only when it stops working do they change the battery in it,

the codes are read with an OBD 2 code reader or scanner through the data link connector in front of the driver under the dash, it is a 16 pin connector. U can buy a code reader on ebay for around $35

I have a 1998 SLK230 and I can't adjust the vents for cool air. It only comes out hot. Could this also be related to an inability to lock or unlock either door form inside or remotely?
