    Hi all!
    Story so far is that I contacted the previous owner of my SL55 to get the Keyless Go cards from him, then went to the dealer to sort it all out.
    I took one DAS key (normal IR remote key) and the two Keyless cards.

    Long story short is that I left without any working KeylessGo function.
    The Star Diagnosis showed EIS Keytrack info as follows:
    Track 1 Disabled
    Track 2 Enabled - this is assigned to the DAS key
    Track 3 Disbaled
    Track 4 Disabled
    Track 5 Enabled
    Track 6 Enabled
    Track 7 Enabled
    Track 8 Enabled
    I assume that the KeylessGo cards I had were assigned to tracks 3&4 but were disabled by the finance company after the previous owner..

    My question is, once a track has been disbaled, can it be re-enabled?? We couldn't see how to do this.

    Secondly, we ordered a new KeylessGo card on a "999" part number, which MBUK should assign to the next available track (track 5?) that arrived this morning - anybody have any ideashow to program the car to recognise the new card?

    Don't dealers have a Green Key for this. The key or card comes programmed but not activated.

    The Green workshop key is used to activate a new EIS module. So what's the process for activating a new card then?

    There are several ignition tracks as you noted above.

    There are only 2 keyless go tracks. Assign one of the new cards to one of the KG tracks.
