Replacement key FOB online
 
Has anyone had success with buying a second Mercedes Key FOB from anyone online.


We have lost our second key to our 2003 E320. I believe it's in the house somewhere. Fell behind furniture or got thrown out by mistake, but not by me. I say she did it, she says I did it. It's her car and she drives it 95% of the time. My key, the missing one, always stayed on the top of my desk. I never carried my Mercedes key unless I was driving her car. I prefer to drive my truck. She drives my truck 5% of the time.


I just called our local dealer for a replacement key and it's about $300, which is not that bad if I knew the key was put out with the trash last year.


I just don't want to spend that much and then find our lost key the next day. I asked the dealer if they could program a second key bought online and they said no.


Where did you get your second FOB?

i got my chrome key online....before MBUSA put the stop to online Smartkey ordering.
they also updated their Theft Relevant policy and made it clear to dealers that they cannot
do this anymore, and asked owners to bring their car to the dealer with proof of ownership.
they made one exception which was that if the car could not be driven or towed in, that
the dealer could send out an MB qualified locksmith to the location.

I paid $260 for a 2nd key.

... p.s. to give you an idea why MBUSA put an end to this, our group buy in was
able to get the Smartkey shipped to our door, programmed by MBUSA TX
facility, for $61.58 including metal blade key.

Not Mercedes but I purchased an active fob for my 2004 Ford F150 on line and it worked fine after programming. Programming requires TWO good fobs.
