You cannot reprogram a smart key once it has been programmed to another vehicle...in fact, it is a total nightmare to get a replacement...it requires taking the title to a MB dealership along with your (matching name) driver license and ordering it directly from them...these people selling replacement or used smart keys on eBay are just ripping people off...believe me, I tried...my used CLK55 AMG came with just one key...I can't imagine the nightmare had I lost that one...it makes me cringe just thinking about it...

11/13/15 MB quote today for new smart key: $320. I ask the parts manager why a Chevy smart key was $70. And the MB was $320. His response, "cause it's a Mercedes." Well, MB I hoping you are reading this. I will not buy a key from you- my rear is sore just thinking about that key. Further, I will never buy another Mercedes-Benz. Here's a shocker for you, there are several other luxury automobile manufacturers that are hungry for business.
