Only the multi function control panel opens/closes garage door. Remotes and keyless entry do not work.

There's a lot of things that can cause range issues. Wireless routers to close to the garage. Bad LED or CFL bulbs. Faulty circuit board. A faulty motion detector on a light. Sometimes if you turn all of the breakers off except to the garage you can isolate it. If that doesn't help call a garage door company to come out.

Need code for Sony DVD and Sony tv and how to program it I have ge 24991 1312 universal remote

Buy a SONY universal remote.
Most universal remotes do not support SONY, but a hand full do.
Packaging should explicitly state support for SONY.
Most IR remotes can use a carrier frequency range of 30-56KHz, with most using normally 38-40KHz, or likely the GE universal. SONY is in the mid 50KHz range, other manufactures in upper 40KHz range and audio equipment Bang & Olufsen and, Kenwood use a 455KHz frequency. The carrier is what your TV or DVD is tuned to see and the codes are transmitted like Morse code for digit ones and zeros to say, change channel or play.
Short to say if you don't find an auto code scan that works then try another manufacture. Manual can be found online at manualslib if lost.

Remote control has very short range

1. make sure battery is inserted correctly.
2. Do you have 2 remotes? Are they both exhibiting short range? Maybe bad remote if 1 is OK and the other is not.
3. Try this to extend range: hold remote under your chin and touching your chin while pressing the button. Your head acts as an antenna to extend the range.

Remote control only works up to 1 metre

A few things can cause similar problems. Make sure your battery is in good condition and the contacts are clean. Check that there is no obstruction between the receiver and the remote. Sometimes it takes careful pointing of the remote toward the receiver. Interference from other electronic equipment could be all or part of your problem as well.

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.

The range on those and the Hamptons is notoriously short. On some it can be measured in inches.

The pull strings had longer ranges so that's what we went with.
