Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

We are both from the Netherlands :smile:

Can I ask a question here as well?
The spare key has oxidised. The battery part still works, but of course the transponder died. It's too far gone to remove the oxidation. Is there any way to replace this and connect it to the car again without paying 300 euros at the MB dealer?

Thank you very much! "Groetjes" (greetings) from the Netherlands

Welcome.
I have no personal experience with these kind of shops but they claim they can repair/reprogram blank keys. You could try this one De Sleutelspecialist Nijmegen specialisten in mercedes sleutels
If you do go down that route, I for one am curious about the results.

Do what exactly? windows up from remote? Covered in owner's manual.
Or the SmartTop and its extra functions?

http://www.slkworld.com/general-discussion/121481-what-smarttop-all-members-keep-talking-about.html


In the programming instructions:

Function 3 - Remote Control ( 0=OFF / *1=ON WU / 2=ON WD / 3=EXT WU / 4=EXT WD )
This function allows full automatic top operation with the original remote fob by pressing the lock and unlock buttons.
Also here it is possible to determine (independently from operation via the center console switch) the position of the windows after opening the top.
Setting 1 is standard remote mode with windows up (WU) after top open.
Setting 2 is standard remote mode with windows down (WD) after top open.
Settings 3 and 4 (EXTENDED) are the same as 1 and 2 respectively, but it is possible to turn the ignition on and start the engine while the top still continues. Additionally locking the doors by remote will not interrupt an ongoing top operation.

mods4cars product manual

Top operation with the remote fob:
Tap unlock on the remote 2x (in 1 sec intervals) to open all windows.
Tap unlock on the remote 3x (in 1 sec intervals) to open the top and bring the windows into the selected position (WU=Windows Up, WD=Windows Down).
Tap unlock on the remote 4x (in 1 sec intervals) to open the top and and bring the windows into the opposite position this one time (Down on settings 1 and 3, Up on settings 2 and 4).
Tap lock on the remote 2x (in 1 sec intervals) to close all windows.
Tap lock on the remote 3x (in 1 sec intervals) to close top and windows.
Tap lock on the remote 4x (in 1 sec intervals) to close top and leave windows down.
Tap any direction to stop an ongoing operation. To stop the top in extended mode in any door lock state, tap the same direction twice!

Rear windows up or down if firmware/software updated based on version of SmartTop
