Customer Question

Customer: My name is***** got a 350 SLK n just had it transported from GC to ***** *****. I got the car from the depot n the car started. At home, yesterday, I had to click many times before it opened. Now it does not open with any of my clickers n the key, inserted in the clicker, also does not turn in the lock.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: the red light on the clicker comes on but now no reaction at all from the doors
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Mercedes Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that you have an issue with both key fobs but if both have stopped working at exactly the same time then it's more likely to be a problem with the vehicle. If you don't know for sure that both were working correctly and stopped at exactly the same time though then there coudl be a problem with both fobs. You may also have a dead battery on the vehicle.

Have the fob batteries been tested or replaced?

Have the fobs been tested to see if they're transmitting a strong signal each time the buttons are pressed?
