C250d annoying clicking noise

Asked by Nick Andjelic

I've had my new Mercedes Benz C250d Estate for three months and I love it. Having dropped it off for a small warranty repair, I asked about an annoying "clicking" noise — seven small clicks that come from within the dash area or from under the passenger seat — which happens three to six times an hour. I was told it's the Keyless Go, with the car looking for the remote key. They say nothing can be done. Really? I have owned other cars including another Mercedes-Benz, and test driven other Benzes before purchase, and this did not happen. Can you help in getting rid of the "cricket" that lives in my car?

Mercedes-Benz Australia admits there is a problem but has no timeline yet on a solution. I'm not a fan of the Keyless Go in any case and my solution is to plug the electronic key into the slot beneath the silver start button. Remove the plastic cap first.
