    Hi I have a W210 E320,

    My one and only key fob was dropped a while back and has been slowly dying, as in i have to be right next to the car for it to work and today stopped working completely.
    Not only the doors but for the first time the ignition as well. I replaced the batteries but still neither work. I noticed a rattle and took it apart.

    A few bits fell out, one was the top of the oscillator and the other was one of the micro switches. i\ guess they were being held in by the fob body.

    I guess I am after the best way forward.
    Do I have to go to Mercedes to get new key does anyone know roughly how much this would cost
    I am going to have to get the train to work and won't be able to get the car out to them, will they send it to me?

    I have heard of companies where you send the key and they reprogram eg. http://www.autokeysquad.com, has anyone used these?

    I am also thinking of trying replacing the cracked oscillator in parallel with the 2 above, but the part number is unreadable, does anyone know what it is or has a spare they could read.


    Many thanks for your help

    Think your best bet is order a new key from your local dealer cost £250 or look on ebay for a second hand one this can then be programed by star to your car

    Thanks for your responses.

    Yes i am confident I could repair it. I just need a number for the oscillator so i can order it from rs or farnell. The casing was completely destroyed and i cant get the number from mine.

    Does Malcolm no longer post here?

    Automotove Electronic/ Remote Key Repair

    Hi,

    I ended up sending my defective key off to Automotove Electronic/ Remote Key Repair.

    There were at least 3 defective components and they fixed it and and sent it back to me within 24 hours all for £65.

    With the added bonus that I didn't have to faf around with documents or getting the stranded car to the Mercedes Garage for reprogramming.

    I can thoroughly recommend them.

    Did they replace the case and give you a 12 month warranty?

    You would think so an equipped workshop could churn through a lot of those in an hour.
