I have tried almost everything you are my last hope before I have to spend loads of money I don’t have.

I have a C180 avantgarde 1999 Since the cold spells my car would not unlock with the remote key however when I opened it with the manual key the alarm would go off and the key would not register or turn after many weeks of trouble shooting I found that If I warm the fuse area around the inside of the car next to the steering wheel the key would start the car and the central locking would work again I have checked the fuses and the area for damp patches the fuses are fine however I changed them all to be safe and there is no damp patches As I say when I warm this area with the hairdryer within 30 seconds or so all is ok. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

If you need more info please let me know..
