W205 key not detected

5 posts in this topic

Hi. Need advice from experts.  Just got a pre owned c180 w205. Today when I try to keyless unlock it won't work so I had to press the fob. When entering into the car the keyless start go couldnt work and showed "key not detected". Fortunately I managed to manually start the car. Can expert please advise on this beside sending it to work shop? Thanks

Actually since you said you just got it from used car dealer; For me, I would go back to my dealer to get this checked.

Or could this be a non-keyless entry model, but went for aftermarket alteration? 

Sorry I can't help further as I never had such issue......wish you luck.

No worries. Thanks.  I am sure the dealer won't think this is a lemon law item.. No point going bk to them. I am OK to go workshop just wanting to see if any one has experience or knowledge so at least there is some sense on what's happening. 

Thks
