No. It will only work with the car it was originally coded for. Better go locate the person who you sold your car to.

Once coded to a car it can not be recoded, The housing could be reused, but to tell the truth its not worth more tha $50, a brand new one is around $200 at most honest dealers coded to your car.

I called the dealer and they said it CAN be programmed to a different car
You mind sharing the name and phone number of this magical dealer? Every one I've ever talked to said they come from MB programmed (the dealers order them) and once programmed, they are programmed and can't be re-programmed.

If your dealer has a mystical way of doing it ("Coming soon to USA Network: The Key Whisperer") I'm sure they will be inundated by members here and everywhere, so please do share.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

If you read my original post you would know the name of the dealer. Think and read before posting.

Key is sold anyway

Nice attitude while you're taking money from strangers. I do think and read, which is irritating to those who are hoping to pull a fast one. Speaking of thinking, think about this: just because you bought it from one dealer (and paid too much) doesn't mean that's the one you allegedly called that backed up your story. Speaking of reading, you didn't complete your profile and never stated your location so we had no idea where you are now anyway.

Good luck, just remember that what goes around comes around.
