3 button key

i habe got a spare 3 button infrared remote that i just purchased off ebay for my 2005 e-class
i have been told that this is not programmable to my car because the key can only be coded once, is this true?
anybody got experience in this?
any help is appreciated

You got it right. The key housing is a useful spare part if the old key is worn out.

The Smart Key remote is coded once By MB who maintains the codes by vehicle VIN. As per the previous post, it can be used to replace the housing if yours breaks. The dealer can not program or re program, other than permanently removing them from the cars DAS memory. Hope you got it cheap, probably stolen by a parking attendant from the glove bin, where some keep their second one.
