2005 C240 - Weak reception of key signal
Very strange issue. One day, my 2005 C240 wouldn't lock/unlock with the key fob / remote unless I was standing right next to the drivers side door. At any other distance, it wouldn't work.
Naturally, I grabbed my spare set - same problem.
Then I replaced both batteries - same problem.
Then, next time I got my service, I ordered a new set of keys - same problem.
I asked the technician, he was baffled and basically told me to just live with it.
So it is definitely a "reception" problem of the car, rather than something wrong with the keys. Has anyone seen this before?
