Remote / Key stopped working

(ML350) No problem I thought, just replace the battery. That didn't fix it. Additionally, if I use this key manually it sets off the alarm until I get the key in the ignition. Plus, I don't think I can lock the car w/o the other remote. (I assume to keep from locking your keys in the car).

There have no knowledge of this key being dropped or immersed. Any ideas?

What year is your ML 350? I did not know you could change the battery.

Its a 2005. I couldn't figure it out but after checking the manual it turned out to be easy. Its similar to this one, though the buttons are laid out different.

That's what i thought. This is the 2006+ forum so our key fobs are different from yours. Have you tried asking on the W163 board (for your model)? They may have had similar experiences

Hmmm, the directory lists a 98-05 forum and an 05-present forum (?).
I'll give the other forum a try, thanks!

Al that comes to mind is to make sure your new battery is in fact good and then make sure it is installed the right way and is making contact.
