Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
It almost always is a faulty front passenger door control module. The door control module is actually the seat switch on the door. It controls all of the functions of the door except the locks. I suggest replacing the door control module with a used one on ebay. To replace it is very simple, just use a plastic wedge or flat blade screw driver to pop off the wood trim strip above the door handle. Then you can loosen the 5 or 6 T-20 torx screws behind the trim. Pop off the inner cover of the inside door handle/release lever and loosen the last remaining screw. Now the whole door control module/seat switch assembly can be replaced. You shouldn't need to program it to get it working again.
