Electrical switches in the door latches can fail, causing the door locks to rapidly actuate up and down multiple times when the locks are activated by either the keyless remote or door lock switch. A new door latch will need to be installed.

    Left rear passenger door shotguns when closing, will not lock, over $ 500+ for dealer to repair, we live with problem simply manually push lock down, it stays down , stills makes noise when trying to lock, not worth $ 500 to fix

    Machine-Gun effect on door locks when activated. Some work, some do nothing, some go into 'machine gun' effect. at over $200 per door JUST for the cost of the part, this is a ridiculous and ON_GOING issue with Mercedes-Benz.
