Don’t jumble around digging for your car keys. With the Mercedes-Benz KEYLESS GO® feature, you don’t have to.

Hello, I’m Jeff Moon, Service Drive Technician, and today I want to show you a quick and simple feature with your SmartKey®, so you don’t have to dig it out of your purse or pocket. With Mercedes-Benz KEYLESS GO®, you can unlock, lock, start, and stop your car or even close your windows and sunroof from the outside of your vehicle, simply by having your SmartKey® in the immediate vicinity of your Mercedes-Benz.

To unlock your car, firmly grip the driver’s door handle.  To unlock all doors, grab any of the passenger handles. If your button is in place, each press is like turning the key one position as long as you don’t press on the brake. With one touch, you can turn on your vehicle’s accessories, such as the radio. Press the button a second time and the dash lights and all electrical items will turn on. Press a third time with your foot off the brake and everything turns off. You can also turn all features off by opening your door. If you want to lock your vehicle from the outside, simply touch the sensor located on the door handle.

Forget to close the windows and sunroof? No problem! Keep your finger on the sensor until the windows finish closing.
