My mother just bought a 2000 C230. The keyless entry only seems to have a range of about 5 feet, and you must point the remote at the sensor in the door handle. Is this normal for the W202? I have a W203 and it has great range.
Does the W202 not use a radio signal??? Is it just infrared?
I had the same problem on my 240. Transmitter would only work when pointed at the IR receiver on either door handle. Dealer said some module was damaged inside the car and had it replaced. Now the transmitter works as you would expect it to.
My W202 C280 Sport works from inside my house about 15ft but its has to be aimed exactly right and at the sensor on the mirror its not like my other cars where its radio signal and you dont have to aim it, mercedes allways makes things more difficult than needed
