New Master Replacement Problem

Master Key Replacement Doesn't Start Car


Hi folks, I have a wonderful 1997 SL500 Sport. I recently bought a Master Key (not the one with remote) it locks and unlocks the doors and allows me to turn key in the ignition/turn over starter but engine will not start with this key. My Master Keys with IF do work properly. I'm wondering whether key needs to be somehow programmed for the engine to start. The dealership tech I asked about this didn't seem to know why it wouldn't start yet it turnsover. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. One other question, I've read a number threads about replacing OEM brake pads with ceramic pads, understanding they leave much less dust residue on the wheels(I have AMG wheels) and they give good performance with less heat buildup. Any thoughts from users of ceramic pads, brand used and whether you would suggest these for a 12 old MB with only 29,000 miles?
Thanks....this is a great site.
