 Description of the problemI was in unfamiliar area. Remote key would not operate. When using small key to enter vehicle car siren would not quit blaring and . New batteries did not help. Mercedes responder told me i had inoperative "dead" key. Car of course was inoperative. No way to move car from area. Could not secure car. I had rbm in atlanta on cell phone entire time. About hour later someone took me to my home for spare key. This worked. Key was as mercedes responder told me...... Dead. The mercedes keys are unsafe and undependable. Need to be recalled. Mercedes would not replace "dead" key per kyrus frames at rbm in atlanta. Because my car had 57000 miles on it and out of warranty. Key must be recalled due to safety concern there is no way to operate a "dead" key. Mercedes responder told me that he sees it all the time. What if??? I had been miles from home? Unsafe area? Compromising situation? This is unacceptable for $100,000 car. I could be dead. Just provide a workable key mercedes.

  • What is Recall? A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure? Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.
