Hi guys, I recently joined this forum since my gf purchased a 2005 c230kompressor coupe hatchback.
Im hoping you guys can help me out with a problem which I have been scouring the forums and web in hopes of solving.Ive been getting more info and closer to a prognosis but am open to any additional help anyone can provide.
Recently my gf's car went in for tinting. I will first say that the tint is a non metallic based tint by Formula 1. What Im thinking is that the process of the install (whether it be moisture from applying the film or just simply disturbing the wires within the headliner or c-pillar where the antenna is) damaged the reception and keyless entry capabilities (since they are linked)? Ive read many threads but there seems to be limited info to pinpointing the actual problem.
My question is, since there seems to be several parts to the antenna in the rear windshield, is it possible to diagnose which component of the several is damaged? There seems to be about two main antennas and perhaps 1 or 2 connectors that are subject to damage.... I just need to narrow it down to which one?
I realize that I should check the fuse (which I did in the trunk) and several other common things to consider first before diving deeper into the problem. At this point I'm stuck since electronics are tricky.
Im hoping some of you have info on the fix since it seems to be a problem several people have experienced?
I appreciate any of your help and if people would prefer to private message me please do. Thanks again.
