I have a C240 w203 model with the old shape plastic three button key. The key intermittantly work to locl/unlock the car and when it fails I have to place it in the ignition and turn the car on and then the key will lock the car. I have tried replacing the batteries but the problem still persists. Does the key need re-programed or If I order a new key from the dealer would that work? I need to order a new key as when I bought it the car only came with one spare key. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the reply S-A-M / U-N-I-T. Does the new chrome style keys work if I ordered one from the dealer?

When you get your new key you can send the old one to me and I will see if I can fix it for you

Do you happen to know how much the chrome one is? I'm just checking on behalf of my brother in law who somehow only has 1 key so needs a spare.

Thank you

They only send out the chrome key now as the stocks of the plastic ones are finished now :D

Even better - At £210 let's hope he doesn't lose another!

He will need the log book and some ID before it can be ordered,,a birth mark even better depending on where it is:D

Hi Television i have found some keys on ebay for £40 but they will require a blade and programming.

Any idea how much this would cost or if Mercedes would even entertain the idea of programming this ?

thank you
