'99 CLK320 EIS Issue


Purchased the running CLK320 at auction last week. Went to pick her up the first of this week. Upon trying to start her, the key would not work. The alarm wouldn't set, nor would any function of the remote work. I had the car towed to Fullerton 76 for further evaluation. Ruben indicated that we should start with a new key and go from there.

Ventured to Mercedes-Benz of Anaheim, where I met with Travis Usary. After a one hour discussion, I was permitted to order the key without having to bring the car in. Spoke to Travis today and it seems that this car has already had 9 keys made for her. He indicated that they ordered replacement key number 2 for her. I seem to recall that once you go through the 9 keys, you have to replace the entire EIS and start anew. Am I correct in this assumption?

Any input would be deeply appreciated.
