There should be a key switch under the hood but you need a different key to the ignition key, it is usually a much smaller key than the ignition one.

SOURCE: My 2003 mercedes kompressor C200 key is not working!

the key's are special order and they are fairly expensive. Test the voltage in your remote batteries. They should be 3 volts. These systems are very voltage senstive and require a good battery to operate properly. I'm assuming you have the original batteries in the remote now and it is 6 plus years old. These batteries generally last 3 years so it is definatly time if you have not replaced them yet!

The EIS (Electronic Ignition Switch) is malfunctioning. You will have to replace the EIS and take the car to a dealer to reprogram the keys.

Battery dead boot locked and wont open manually

If you have a trailer plug in the rear of the vehicle, power can be feed into the correct terminals to allow for electric things to work. Also, the interior power outlet for the cigarette lighter can be used as a port to feed in power with any cigarette power lead. Just be sure to use the negative with the same polarity.

For that matter, if the interior is accessible, you can uncover the fuse panel and feed power into the fuse block. Any 12Volt battery will provide enough power to open the boot.

I have a 1992 mercedes benz 300ce and i cant get the alarm to shut off. ive tried unlocking and locking it again with all keys but i cant get it to shut off

You must turn the car on after alarm goes off. Door locking and unlocking dont work after the alarm goes off. Its like you break a window to get in anyone can lock or unlock a door thats why its tied to the ignition.
