synchroizing a new key

I got a new key from Mercedes. It works the doors and trunk but the IR sensor doesn't pick it up. (It is an "old" 96 SL). Any ideas on how to get the car's sensor to recongize the key? Mercedes wants $75 to program it.

Those years are user-programmable.
Check the manual, or search this forum for procedure.

Ditto to Kajtek1. With newer cars/keys, dealers have to program them. If you don't have your manual, try the search.
