I am new to this site. Purchased a 1999 Mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor 2 months ago. I drove a Mercedes C230 sedan until an accident. I know nothing about the car I have purchased, am the 3rd owner. Steering makes grunting sounds, and the keyless entry does not work. Also none of the buttons in the car function, like unlocking and locking the car, adjusting outside mirrors. Any hints available that do not translate to spending tons of money at the dealer? Purchased from a personal seller.

Welcome from New Hampshire, try replacing the battery in the fob first. A known problem on the pre facelift models is the PSE pump in the trunk/boot, it controls the door locks.

:confused:Welcome from Virginia. Did you address those problems with the previous owner? Possibly they could provide some insight.

Thanks

Thank you to all who welcomed me! I am still trying to find my way around this site. Also as for my question on my SLK in my original Hello, someone responded with PSE Pump in trunk/boot. Oh. No one sigh or laugh, but, I do not know what that is. The SLK experience is 2 months new to me!!:confused:
