1996 E300D Door locks foobar


I've recently lost my door locking capabilities via the key or fob. I can lock the doors via the dash switch, and unlocking the driver's door unlocks all other doors, so I know the PSE is working. I cannot lock all doors via the key, nor does the key close windows and sunroof any longer.

Fuse #3 under the rear seat blows instantly when replaced, so there's a short somewhere, but I'm uncertain where to start on this troubleshooting adventure. My first inclination is that there may be a flaky switch @ the mechanical lock... I always use the mechanical key as I have too many keys to carry fobs for all vehicles.

Has anyone experienced anything like this?

Thanks in advance for your help.
