I have a 2004 C220 CDI VIN: WDC2030082R151759 Central locking not working on remote key fob even from close up. Works fine on dash switch. Radio reception also very poor. I have heard that this could point to amplifier being at fault. Can you confirm and ,if so where is it and is DIY repair/ replacement possible. While I am on tyre wear is bad on this car ... Avantgarde model. Is it just a characteristic of this model or might I have a problem? Back end is a bit skittish on poor surfaces. I know front geometry is spot on. I get approx. 9000 miles per set. Thanking you in anticipation. Stuart XXXXXXX

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Please continue to try to find someone. I need to get this fixed although I can lock and unlock the car on the manual key.
Thanks for getting back.
Don't worry about not finding someone yet but please continue to look for a bit longer. I cannot afford to go to Mercedes with this. If you can get someone to confirm that the amplifier is at fault and give me a pointer as to where it is on the car I would be obliged.
If you can't find anyone in, say, another week I will call it a day. I presume I would get a refund?
Holding on at this end.
Thanks for your efforts.
I guess I will just have to go to Mercedes.
Refund will be appreciated.
Thanks for getting in touch.
If you can give me any advice, I would still be pleases to
I thought I responded to this when received but don't see any record.
If you can help me please do otherwise a refund would be fine.
