Whenever the keys or ignition lock are replaced on Mercedes models equipped with the smart key, the dealership must reprogram the ignition and keys together. Unfortunately, the vehicle may have to be towed to your local Mercedes dealership along with all keys for reprogramming. If you need any assistance after having the keys programmed, then I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to perform a 75-point safety inspection to make sure car is as safe as possible.
