The remote key has a 2 coin batteries fitted. These may have gone flat. Point the keyfob at the car and watching the key press the unlock button. On the key fob there should be a small LED light which blinks. If not, the batteries need replacing. Try this YouTube video. I think they are CR2025 type batteries.

I hope I'm wrong, but sounds like a wiring harness malfunction possibility. Back in the late 70's, I had a '67 VW van. At night, when I'd turn off the ignition the engine would turn off, as it should IF I TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS, BUT IF i TURNED THE LIGHTS BACK ON AS THE ENGINE WAS SHUTTING DOWN, THE ENGINE WOULD RESUME RUNNING.

The voltage regulator in the alternator has probably failed. The AH rating of the battery has nothing to do with it. This is why I would never own a MB, too many gadgets that cost a fortune to fix when they fail.

Those seats probably use a relay as well as fuses. The owners manual has a legend for the fuse and relay location and function.
