Used AAM

Hi,
I believe my All Activity Module is dead (at least that is what my repair shop said). The dealer wants $1000 to put in a new on. There are several used ones out there for my make and model. Can I buy a used one and get it to work with my keys? If yes what is the best place to take it to for this work?

Thanks!
Adrienne

It might help if you told us what MB (year and model) you have. Dealers are almost always the highest dollars you can spend on repairs but 99% of the time they fix the problem. And don't forget you get a 12 month warranty on parts and labor. I'm not sure about the mileage limitations.

So sorry - it is a 2001 ML 430. It has about 120K miles on it.

Thanks!

No problem and thanks for the additional info. Have you searched around on the W163 forum? That's what MB calls your chassis and there might be other owners who have been faced with a similar situation. Sorry but I can't offer any advice.
