    Hi,
    So this is a brand new key from Mercedes, costing an arm and a leg. Did it open your doors ok? Did it " clunk " and let you turn on the ignition but not start the van.
    All you have now is "Strange Writing" which I cannot see but there seems to be a picture of a key on the dash. I presume you may have to sync the key to the ignition.
    is this youtube of any help?

    We had a new key some time ago and I was told that it did not require coding as previous but just placing in the ignition where a "handshake" with the vehicle took place.
