Cutting through the bull about Mercedes key programming
I have a 2002 S600 which needs a spare remote key. The dealer key is $275.00 and comes programmed and ready to go. I'm fine with this, but if there's a less expensive source for keys I'd be interested.
So, very simply put, can an anateur DIY'er program his/her own mercedes remote key? I'm speaking of a modern mercedes key here.....roughly 1999 or later, looking like either of the attached.
There seems to be a lot of vague and/or confusing statements floating around out there suggesting that a DIY'er can program his/her own key without expensive gear. Yea or ney?
