Your locks are out of sync. Lock all doors from Drivers side. Then go around to passenger side unlock, lock and relic. Should be able to unlock doors from drivers side as normal. If not, then one of your actuators are bad.

    Thanks... Looks like I have a bad drivers door actuator. All the other doors work all the time but the drivers door lock doesn't unlock fully. That's the actuator, right? Where do you get something like that?

Your car may have had a new ignition switch installed - hence the different key. The FOB may not be programmed properly to lock / unlock. Have you contacted a MB dealer?

Most cars have manual method to open doors. Put key in, turn key as far as possible, lift door handle and you should now be able to turn key further and unlock door.

Door keys will not insert all the way


if you use the central locking all the time the lockes get clogged you need to spray loads and loads off wd40 or other brands in the key hole to flush out the lockes. and then the pins will move so the key will go in.

Several months ago I began experiencing a occasional problem with the anti-theft system of my 1992 Nissan Maxima SE 5 speed manual trans. Using my key I unlocked the drivers door and opened the door. The...


jimmy: it sounds like the drivers door unlock tamper switch or the other switch may have failed. One side can affect the other under certain circumstances. Your trunk lock also has a switch which arms and disarms the antitheft system. Try locking all the doors, make sure the hood and trunk lid are closed and then open the trunk. Leave it open open the drivers door and try to start the car.
If it's a no start. Disconnect the ground battery cable then put the ignition key in the run position in you ignition switch. Reconnect the battery and try to start the car. It should start. This usually will override the anti theft system. One issue with this will be, whether the antitheft system will remain disarmed.
Although I have never tried this before, I know that the system will not arm unless all the doors, trunk and the hood are closed.
I could suggest this to try if the car starts as I had told you pertaining to disconnecting the battery cable, I would take the switch and unbolt it from the passenger's side of the engine compartment just forward of the shock tower. Just let it sit somewhere so it doesn't get caught up in anything moving. If there is a light under the hood of your car, remove the bulb.
Let me know how you make out.

Unable to lock car whith key.


Probably not. The reason the trunk (boot)and the doors have different keys is that the locking mechanism is completely different. I'm not sure bout this particular car but generally that's the case. Your best bet would be to try to find a door lock with a key at a junkyard or on eBay.

I cannot open my trunk


I have an '85 280SL and had the same problem. Try unlocking the car from the driver's side using the interior lock/unlock lever. On my car this unlocks the doors, trunk and the fuel door. Once done, you need only push on the trunk lock and it should open. If not, make sure you are not using a valet key as these will only open the doors.
