If a car can be idiot-proof -Mercedes is.
I would try to push the door knobs and leave thru passenger door.

Your Benz came with Two Keys.
Leave key in ignition
Use your back up key to lock all doors.

It's supposed to be a safety feature. My doors lock automatically as soon as the speed of 15km/h is reached.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can enable/dissable this feature from the Settings menu.

When I have a key in the ignition the other key does nothing! That is how the system is designed. I wish I could lock the car while it is idling/warming-up, but I cannot.

Interesting question, and I've never tried to do that. Thanks for telling us about the workaround.

Did I miss something? Is there a workaround? I certainly wish there was, but have been unable to find one. Please clarify...

I do not believe I can dissable that feature. Would like to know how if it is possible, but not sure why one would do that.
