This sounds like pretty advanced problem and you might need Star Computer for full diagnosis.
What I can figure out from your description, the car is not recognizing the knob chip and that triggers security system to quit responding to the remote.
Again this is my guess having limited knowledge about MB security. Observe red LED on the radio when you do those things. The blink intervals tells about key recognition, although I never could get clear indication how exactly.
Now is good time to try second key.
Good luck

Keys in US are dealers and dealers only item. I think it will be the same in your country.
I just paid $198 for nice gen 2 chrome key. If you can shop around, as dealers in my county wanted $250

Just to make sure - you do have smart key or knob for the ignition and blade key for mechanical locks on the door and trunk?
Ebay stuff is usable only for the case swap. The knob has to be programmed by central MB locksmith.
