My key fob on my 98 c230 stopped working so I...

Changed batteries because I have never changed batteries on it and it still didn't work. The red light flashes on the key fob but nothing works...what else can I do?

Do you have another key that works? If your spare works, then that's a good sign.
Take the key you're having trouble with and leave it in the ignition for a few minutes. I think I remember reading that this should reset things... but I might be completely mistaken. Doesn't hurt to try though.

So I compared both key fobs. When I normally press the button on the bad key fob, it doesn't light up. When I hold it down for a little longer there is a flash, but it is delayed where as in the good fob as soon as I press the button the light flashes.

All I know is the fob has lock, unlock, trunk and panic on it. Don't know much about DAS3 etc.
