My Sprinter ( Sorry, ELITES, I do not know the chassis lingo to call my DODGE-MERCEDES-FIAT? Sprinter..forgive me, for I have sinned )
All 4 Flip Key Remotes work poorly. I figured that Neiman probably saved by putting old batteries in them during production, so tried fresh batteries.... no improvement.
Dealership gives non-answers to any technical inquiries. It is either ignorance or defiance.
I might call Dodge Corporate. Last time I got delays and foolish replies, they resolved the issue in hours. All I want to know is how to resolve having a super crappy RKE system.
As a locksmith, I am seeking a manner to create a straight key to house the RFID chip, IF that chip is separate from the keyless entry circuit board.....
Then it is AFTERMARKET receiver and Remote that will recognize a remote from, say..... more than 8 feet, if I get the English just right!
Just need to divorce these elements from one another!
My 6 month old ML 350 remote locking system does not work well at all. Sometimes you have to press the remote 5 or more times while standing right next to the drivers door and nothing happens. Eventually it does unlock if you just keep pressing. The dealer changed the batteries in the keys but to no avail. The second time they looked at it they did nothing. It is definitely not right and friends laugh at the probelms I experience when trying to unlock my very expensive 2009 Mercedes Benz. Any ideas will be welcome as the delear seems clueless.
