06 CLK 350 Key Remote Will not Work

I have a 06 CLK 350 which one the remotes stopped working. I replaced the batteries and reset it per the manual, but still will not function. Light works but no response. I contacted the dealer and they stated the boards go bad and would have to order a new one. I asked about re-programming one as they are available on e-bay. They stated once a remote is programed for one vehicle, it cannot be re-programed for another. Anyone have insight on this? Thanks!

That is pretty well it. The ony value those remotes have is to scavage for a housing if yours is bad. They can not be reprogrammed no matter what the E-Bay seller says

Thank you!
I needed confirmation whether the dealer was just trying to sell a new one.
Thanks again!

Do you mean you cannot open the doors and cannot start the car? It isn't usual that both stop working at once.

A a typical remote is in the $200 area, and probably the new chrome style, car out of warranty?

Cannot lock/unlock doors or open trunk. Dealer said remote around $250 plus $17 for a new blank, not covered under warranty.

I think you are being had, I asked the parts guy and the $250 is list and the key comes with it, he also claimed unless it shows damage it will be covered under the warranty. Ask another dealer, if you have the new style remote it can be ordered without the key.

Thanks again! I checked with the dealer in Melbourne and they are the ones who said it was not under warranty, though I believe I spoke with the service manager, not parts. I'll check again and dealers in Orlando. Thanks!

I had one replaced under the standard 4/50 warranty and just looked at my 8/100 extended warranty policy, and in their brochure states "central locking system includes all actuators, linkages, remote transmitters (excluding batteries) and recievers. They somehow don't cover the radio or faceplate.
