All Mercedes Benz vehicles manufactured since 1995 are equipped with a factory-fitted immobiliser system linked to a small computer chip embedded in a Chrome or black plastic remote key Fob. This makes the key cutting & programming procedure very complex and requires high-tech diagnostic tools to complete. The Dealer will ask you to drive the vehicle to their base (or have it towed if you have lost all your keys) and then will order the keys from the Mercedes headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. You will need to wait about 10 working days before you will be asked to pay another visit to the Dealer so that the keys can be programmed to your car.
New Mercedes models are usually supplied with two Remote Car Key Fobs at point of sale. The fobs are typically of modern chrome or contained in a black plastic casing on some earlier models.
