Hello everyone, I am new to this forum...so I apologize in advance if I make any mistake !!! I am a fan of Smart for a long while. I just bought from a dealer in Edmonton a used Smart Fortwo 2014 with a relatively low mileage. I discovered after the transaction that the car was initially a rental from Car2go in Calgary, which is not a problem. The car is in very good shape and works perfectly. However, I only received one key. So I want to have another one, just in case. I was in contact with one of the Mercedes dealer, here in Edmonton, and bought a key and expected it to be program too, however, then an issue arose. It seems that car2go, which is fully own by Daimler the parent company of Mercedes, use some sort of customized software for the SAM module of its car and the Mercedes dealer couldn't reprogram a key. I was then asked to contact car2go in order to get them to either erase their software or provide some information so the dealer can reprogram a new key and then someone else in the dealership explained that it may be only a matter of Mercedes updating their information about the car in their system. So I have another appointment with the dealer to try again to program a second key. But before I go, I would like to gather the most info I can about this kind of situation. While the staff of the dealership seem professional and honest, I would still like to avoid confusing situations where I could be brought to make unnecessary expenses. I'd like to know if anyone is aware of such situation, or has experienced it or if there are any alternative options to get a second key, should the dealer not able to program another one ? Any information would be appreciated! Thanks in advance !
MiniMoke posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 451 Model, 2008-2015, gasolineHi, I've been having strange things happen with the central-locking. Simply holding the keyfob the "wrong way" will cause the car's doors to lock/unlock randomly. The key and keyfob otherwise work OK, but I think it's time to swap to the spare key. But I have a problem. The spare key has never worked since we bought the car (we're the second owners). The physical cut of the key looks identical, however it will not turn in the ignition. Is there an electronic lock-out preventing the key turning? The open/close buttons don't work (yes the battery's been replaced ), so I'm thinking at the very least it needs to be sync'd with the SAM. As an experiment, I took the working circuit board out of the working key put it into the spare-key fob. The key still didn't turn. So I think this means that the physical key cutting might not be correct. Before I start comparing the key-cutting under a magnifying glass, does anyone know whether there's anything else preventing the key from turning? Any advice most appreciated.
