Q: Replace key battery message on Mercedes won't go off

asked by on January 03, 2017

I've replaced the batteries on both of the keys to my Mercedes C220 but the warning message won't go off. Any ideas?

My car has 20000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It is possible that the key fob battery warning light has to be reset manually and does not go off automatically when the batteries are replaced. I would recommend looking through your owners manual to see if there is a reset procedure for this particular warning light. If there is not reset procedure, I would recommend contacting your local Mercedes Benz dealer as they will likely have any tools required to reset the light. It is also possible that the key fob itself has a malfunction that is causing the light to come on. I would recommend having this issue inspected by a qualified professional.

My 2006 Silverado has been shuddering between 45 and 55 mph. I have replaced the u joints in the drive shaft, checked to make sure the drive shaft balancing weight is still attached, replaced the tires and had them balanced, front end alignment. Shudder is felt in the seat/body of the truck and not in the steering wheel.

Hey honey. Yes I have a 2014 Chevy equinox and the gauges are not working on the dash. Fuel, rpms, speedometer and I have changed all the fuses that I assume go to it and I have tried to trace down the ground wire but am not sure where it's located and I'm just a single lady and I don't have any man to help me so do you have any suggestions as to what else I can do before having to pay a mechanic?
