Hey guys - 05 SL500 and my remote entry does not work (can't lock or unlock with the remote). I have tried both remotes. I CAN lock/unlock the doors from inside the car by pressing the button on the dash, so I know they at least work. My keyless go is also not working, but I'm not sure if the two are related or not. Bought the car recently with these issues disclosed, now just trying to troubleshoot. I appreciate the feedback -

I took the battery out of both remotes tonight and they are completely dead. Can't wait to go to Radio Shack in the morning...I'll be able to lock my car and everything! No more manual locks in my 2005 Mercedes! Man...you know when you ask a question and then realize you never really gave it much thought yourself before you asked? Well, I.....
