Just as I was thinking my car is really running well and nothing is wrong with it I find that my key fob has failed :cry:. I haven't had chance to get to the dealership as yet however I wonder if I can get it fixed under warranty:confused:

It is a genuine Mercedes Keyfob that I had with the car so it must be under the 3 years unlimited mileage warranty. Perhaps at the last service it was damaged by a trainee during battery replacement.

Looks serious. Quite a rare failure as the fobtronic units are normally very reliable.
I believe driving your car with such a failure could invalidate your warranty so don't risk it, call Mobilio and have it towed in.
