greetings I'm AE6500
I have a 2004 Mercedes S320 Diesel
its a great car but i'd like to know more about it.
I hope being a member of this community will help.
My first problem is my key fob. It seems to be losing active range.
I have to go right up to the handle and press it to get it to work.
You think the battery is going in the keyfob right?
strangely, my spare keyfob which has never been used has exactly the same problem.
I took apart both keyfobs and checked the batteries with my multimeter and they appear to be ok ie. reading over 6VDc as a series pair.
Q. Is the battery the only reason why the keyfob would be losing range or could there be something wrong with the car sensors?
