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.

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.

Why does my bose RC-9 remote works only at close range?

1. The antenna inside (It looks like a coil of thick copper wire) gets broken or the solder breaks away.

2. The data cable has been coiled up (to make it neat and tidy). The data cable is the actual antenna to pick up the remote control signal.
Solutions :

1. The remote control can be repaired.

2. If the data cable is all coiled up, spread it out loose and this will make the remote control work much better.

Hope this helps :)

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.
