Does this key belong to me?

Novice here! The car is a 2016 E350 convertible. Recently, I had an occasional "anti-collision inoperative" notice on my key fob, which I learned may be due to a low battery charge. I drove for 10 minutes and the message disappeared. While starting the automobile last Thursday, a message appeared prompting me to consult a workshop without needing to change gears. There were no warning sounds or check engine lights. I drove the car up and down the driveway without any issues, but the message persisted. Utilised husband's key but found no message. I replaced the battery in my key fob, and it worked well until this morning. I received the same message without any warning, but the vehicle didn't start. I then used my husband's key, which had no message, and the car began without any issues. I have since stopped at three locations, restarted the car each time, and everything is working perfectly now. I hope the issue is just with my key. Can I get it inspected at a location other than a Mercedes dealership? Thank you everybody for your assistance!

Replaced batteries in key fob on Friday, however it stopped working this morning. Recently attempted to use my fob again, received no message, and the car is functioning well. I really dislike dealing with cars. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

Successfully used my fob without any issues. Car started and drove normally. Planning to get the codes checked to identify any underlying issues and then assess the key. Can a major issue be identified using error codes? Apologies, this task is not often considered a "pink job," but my hubby is now unwell with a cold.

My recommendation is to charge the primary battery using a smart charger. During winter, batteries tend to discharge more quickly. Then observe the progression of events. A ten-minute trip will not have any significant long-term impact.
