Question For Folks With A Mercedes With Keyless-Go
I put this in OT because the offending vehicle is my 2015 GLK350, but Keyless-Go is pretty ubiquitous on Mercedes cars, so some here will probably have either a newer SLK or another Mercedes.
The question is: Do you ever get a "Key Not Detected" message when you press the START button and your key is wherever you normally carry it? Mine is always clipped to a belt loop on my right side.
I don't get the message all the time, or even often, probably no more than 6 or 7 times in the 13 months I've owned this GLK. Usually happens when I first get in the car in my garage. Door detects the key and unlocks. Get in the car, hit the start button, get "Key Not Detected" message. If I then remove the start button and use the key as a key, the car starts. If I use the key to lock the doors while still in the driver's seat, the press the start button again, the car starts. Because it only happens rarely, I was not surprised when my dealer couldn't find anything wrong when they ran diagnostics on the car. They put a new battery in my key, but it's still happening.
Anyone else have this problem, or know someone who does?
