MY 01 wagon came with two "Smart Keys" (oblong, with a panic button and two, yours has three buttons) there is also a metallic key in that remote, that is removeable for manual unlock of door or trunk. The emergency key is very similar has no buttons, does not unlock unless manual counts, is approximately 1/8 in thick and also has a metal key. The remote lock and unlock is powered via infra red, with the batteries in the remote, and the electronic key, both standard and emergency, are powered by "inductive energy" from the key collar on the car over a redundant data bus.
There are only 24 keys available for any car, additional or replacement, MB keeps the data base, a replacement wipes that key forever, an additional adds one. If you exceed the count it is a complicated and expensive to replace the effected DAS "boards" and keys. Forget E bay!

Thanks for all your replies. So basically, from the factory, there should be a total of 3 keys: 2 smart keys, and 1 valet key, which looks just like the smart key, but without the buttons?

Can any one please show me photos of the smart key and the valet key? Thanks very much in advance!

You can get an owners manual for your car from your dealer or by calling 1-800-for-merc

In addition, a pdf version of your owners manual may be available at when you sign your car up for "owners online."

The owners manual has pictures of the keys.
