2006 E350 Need Another Smart KEY

Hi all,

I've just purchased 06 E350. Later I will post pics.
One issue is that it comes with only 1 key
I see those keys are being sold on Ebay.
Can I buy one on Ebay and ask MBZ dealer to do program? People are bidding on some used keys. Can they reprogram it for their car with the used one?

Thank you in advance.

No. Mercedes prides itself in knowing that the only way to steal a Mercedes is to have a key. The dealer will not reprogram a key, as all keys go through MBUSA. You'll need to show your registration and your license to purchase one, and only can pick it up.

They cost in the neighborhood of 300.00 plus a fee to program. Be sure to have proof of ownership and several valid IDs when ordering at the parts dept.... Stay away from ebay key fobs with claims of reprogramming. Done that, been there....

I paid $220 for mine but the guy at the part counter discounted it.

I recently paid about 240 plus tax - and I agree - do not attempt to purchase one on EBAY you will waste your money - the dealer cannot program, they arrive at the dealer already programmed -

You just have to sync it to make the doors and other electronics work properly.
