Just bought a C200 cdi elegance 2007 The remote key only

Resolved Question:

Just bought a C200 cdi elegance 2007 The remote key only works inches from the drivers door and the radio signal is awful. Any ideas what it might be? I have been told the rear antenna could be damaged as there should be something attached to the rear window but there is nothing on the rear window !

Many Thanks

Pete

Hello Pete,
The problem is usually caused by the antenna amplifier. It is mounted on the roof, under the ceiling panel right along the edge of the rear window. But first of all check the fuses in the trunk fusebox- one of them is for the amplifier.

The antenna is built into the rear window glass, it looks like the window heating thread.

Best regards,
Stan

Thanks Stan

I will try and get hold of a new one if the fuses appear to be okay.

Would you be able to get the part number for me. No problem if you can't.

Thanks

Pete
