Hi can anyone help

My car batterie is flat and the key will not open the boot!

Insert the key into the trunk lock and push. This should open the trunk.

Richard,

I can't tell from your profile whether you're in the US or not, but if so, MB offers a 'free' road service option that may work for you. The 'catch' is that you will buy a new battery from the supporting dealer, but the rest of the service call is free. The tech will also reset your radio, and probably re-synch your windows and top while there. For specifics, call 1-800-FOR-MERC; follow the prompts for Roadside Assistance. Alternatively you can read up on this service at www.mbusa.com

Good Luck-

Bob
