You have an amp in the rear for the long range locking and the radio, they go short circuit,, they are easy to replace

I had this done twice on my W240 C240 in 18 months. Mine was done by the stealer under a Merc service plan, so I can't help on the price. I believe the amp itself is in the roof lining close to the rear screen.

Does your radio make "popping" noises? Mine did before the amp went.

The reason the remote still works is because it is using the infrared sensor on the door, rather than radio control through the amp.
