Glove Box and Center Consol storage are both locked and won't open. I've read all the threads on this subject and tried it all. Pressed against left side of glove box while internally locking and unlocking (many times), sprayed WD40 into handled latch, reset remotes to factory setting...nothing works. The Center Console also won't open. They both occured at the same time. Is it a fuse problem??? None of the threads here worked, can anyone share some light on this subject. Also, does anyone know what schedule C entails?
Thanks so much.

Hey Bob - try this. Sit in the car, and lock the doors with the keyfob in your hand. Unlock with the keyfob, and check to see if they will open. You can actually "hear/feel" the lock on the center console engage/disengage if you have your arm resting on it.

The center console and glove box lock/unlock is controlled by the remote key as John stated.

Thanks so much John, I've tried sitting in the car and locking and unlocking with the keyfob...as the manual states. Wierd problem here. I have a good Mercedes Mechanic who will probably figure it out...I'll post the results when I get it to him...thanks again.

Please do - interested to see what he finds. Normally the locks don't both fail at the same time, so I'd still expect you to be able to open one or the other!

Bummer that Bob never replied-- I'm having this happen intermittently in my 55 (both console and glove boxes remain locked).

I've found that pressing lock, immediately followed by two quick unlocks from the fob will get the console/glove boxes to unlock. I think I might have a failing solenoid or the hose may be coming loose.

John and juiceyman,
Sorry it took sooo long on this issue, life happens. I've had it in 2 shops and finally found a good SLK mechanic that found the problem. The fuse to the "Signal acquisition Module" had blown. Not sure which fuse box but I believe it's the one in the trunk area. Now both the center console and glove box function normally. Thanks for your input.
Bob
