1992 500SL Key Reintegration

Hi,

I recently purchased a 1992 500SL from a family friend and the lock/unlock button on the keys do not work. I replaced the batteries and still haven't had any luck. Because of this issue the car alarm tends to go off upon sticking the key into the ignition when I come back to my parked car after manually using the key to lock the car doors.

The last thing I want to do is bring it into a dealership and have my car stay there for a few days and pay money to get this issued resolved. Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.

In the meantime is there a way to turn the alarm off?

Did your dealer order the proper remote, they are numbered 1,2,3, etc. you cant use the same number at the same time. I have one old and three new syle, they all work. In the US you have to provide the VIN and they use their data base for the next.

For my '92 129 I tried synching the remote (pressing the key and locking/unlocking the driver, passenger, and trunk within 30 sec) and still no results.

When I hold down the button the infrared light flashes once, but I believe it only signals that the batteries are still good.

Thanks for the help thus far. I'm open to any more suggestions as a dealership/mechanic would be my last option.

Thanks!
