I still don’t have a key for my car lol. This is what happens when you try and take the “easy” or cheaper way out. I hate going to the dealer so I usually do whatever it takes not to go. A few months ago I had a problem with the turbo going into limp mode. I could still drive just not very fast up hills. I fixed it eventually, by watching videos and looking through forums. The trouble was the a circuit connection in the waste gate modulator.
I hate going to the dealer because under normal circumstances I can figure out the problem and don’t want to pay the price of legal counsel for a vehicle. Sure they wash it after any maintenance, but the cost is crazy.
There should be at least 2 levels of Mercedes dealers, one for the high rollers, and another for people that like diesel vehicles that will run for 1/2 a million miles. I mean I’ve got a fricken hitch on mine to pull a “catfishing” boat, probably not your average Mercedes owner.
So I bought a few after market keys. They took 8 days to get here, this was taking way longer than I wanted. I initially called the dealer who told me I’d have to tow the car to them and wait several days to get a key.
After getting the blank keys I had to find a lock smith that could program it. I finally found one, but he wanted more money than the dealer. I didn’t care at that point, because I’d still have to wait for the dealer to order a key, and the locksmith could supposedly make me one on the spot. The reason It took so long to find the right locksmith, is that there is specific equipment used for the MB smartkey. This locksmith had just bought the equipment for $30K and never used it.
To make a long story shorter, after 5 hours and numerous calls to his tech support, we determined that my ignition had a “one in a million” circuit board, and a key couldn’t be programmed. So on the way home from work today, I stopped and ordered a new key from the dealer. I’ve now learned my lesson on keys.
