A few weeks ago I was rear-ended in a snowstorm and had to have my
trunk replaced. The body shop ordered a new trunk lock assembly with
IR receiver and had it keyed and coded by MB. At present, the key
turns in the lock correctly, and when you push the button on the
remote the lights flash red and green as they should, however when I
do this the doors do not lock or unlock like they used to.
If you're sitting inside the car and push the door lock button, all
the locks drop correctly, including the trunk and fuel door locks, so
it appears that there is not a vacuum connection issue. Is there some
sort of other synchronizing that needs to be done now with the new
lock, and if so, does anyone have any advice for me?
your description seems to isolate the problem to the RF end of the
door locking system, yes? dont recall if you have window/roof
convenience system which operates using IR. if so, is that portion
The system has sensors in the trunk, rear-view mirror, and the
driver's side door. I've noticed a few other changes since the repair:
Trunk does not release from switch in dash when the car is off.
Trunk release switch does not light up when trunk is open.
Door lock switch does nothing unless the key is in the on position.
I'm really hoping that this won't take a trip to the dealership to
sort it out, since I would have to do this through the body shop in
order for them to cover it.
