Start calling dealers in your area, prices vary a bit and you have to go twice, once to order it and once to pick it up. Roughly $250 but it will be the new chrome style with better range.

If you're hanging around, come join us in the W210 forum (scroll down and you'll see it) for lots of information and tips about your car.

What Greg said plus that remote and ignition chip are separate things inserted in the one body.
Sounds like in your case both of them failed at the same time?
That brings the question if that might be something else, like car computer not recognizing the key?
Is the other key working OK?

I don't reckon you need to resynch the key to the car.....it's just a thought.

Only some pre 2000 MB keys were synchronized. Don't think Smart Keys have ever been.
They come fully programmed from secret location in US
area 59?

A new key comes programmed to the car. Some unscrupulous dealers have charged people to synchronize or program their keys but that is horse hockey as it is not needed.
