The remote won't lock , unlock the door ocassionaly. I have changed the botteries on both remotes , so that rules out the batteries being low.
In addition to this problem I have noticed when this problem exist the reception to the radio is also distorted.
I am 100% sure that the above problems are related , as soon as the radio starts working the locks work with the remote.
I have also noticed that in the current cold weather this problem is occuring more often.
If any one has an explanatiion/Fix to this issue , Would apprceiate your help.

Have a '05 C230K and I have the exact same problem with the key fob. I have not paid attention to the radio, but I will now follow this closely. I'm still under warranty and have thought about taken it to the dealer, but I have no way of presenting this. its so intermittent. I can 't show it to them. Let me know if you figure anything else out.
i have mercedes benz c240 1998 model . the sensor is not working properly the key is work proper but donot open the car and start it. i think any problem in the car please tell me what will i do . thanks
Most likely, the IR receiver in the door get "flooded" with sunlight and the sensitivity goes down for that reason. I had a short cut in my "device" in the front right wheel house, but I heard that it can also be that the connector is filled with water/mud etc. and it will make the fuse to blow.
But it is easy to check it in the trunk under the fuse cover in the left side panel.
