When I bought the Mercedes A-Class W169 it only came with one key. Now, we all knpw that things can happen where either the key gives up the ghost or you lose it. About 20 years ago whilst walking in Harrogate a young lady dropped the keys to her Volvo 340, straight down the drain, it happens.
So I purchased a key from a tuning place in Poppleton, York for £140, peace of mind.
The key has the third button for the tailgate opening and blow me down, it worked.

You are lucky Mike, the boot button has never worked for last 8 years. It has never worried me and I think it's a useless extra.

Sir, I tend to agree with you. If you want the boot for example when leaving the supermarket you'll need to press a button, why two buttons? Surely a gimmick adopted by MB from other manufacturers.

The car remains locked when the boot opens ,maybe part of an anti hijack feature ,there will be a reason behind it.

Mike, do you know the raised round platform, where the Mercedes star suppose to go, is a cover - underneath is a grooved seat for the said star - only a matter of getting one from AliExpress or suchlike.
