Not sure if I can really help as my car has the stock MB system, and then an American Viper 550 system on top of that. So, when my car goes 'nuts' as it is want to do every now and then,I'm not too sure which system is the culprit.
Anyhow, I'm not sure that it is not just a 'timed' lock-out that clears itself automatically and eventually, but in my case I do get frustrated when it occurs.
My usual is to hit the 'lock' button and let it cycle. Then wait a few seconds and only hit the 'unlock' If it doesn't work, wait a minute as the on/off/on seems to also allow it to get confused.
There have been one or two occassions where the doors unlock, and when I turn the key to position 3(?) it's like there is no battery there. I sit there and do my lock, unlock routine and it seems to clear and work fine. I don't know if it is my sequence, or just a timer.
Like I said, I don't know how much of my 'goofies' is due to having the two different systems interlocked, but patience always wins out when it descides to get ornery.
