(Part I) So I purchased the keys for the S500 for $250 for the Mercedes dealership. On Tuesday, I got a call saying that the keys were ready. Sean (my best friend, Mustang driver, and fellow gearhead) headed with me over to the Merc dealer in my parent's MDX. We pulled into the alley where the Merc had been towed behind the service center. At first, we intended to start it, so we knew we needed to jump the car. The car was completely lifeless and didn't respond to the key fob, so we returned in a half hour with jumper cables. The car's systems sprung to life, as well as the alarm system. The Mercedes mechanics started giving us curious looks, but thankfully the fob was correctly paired with the car, and I was able to deactivate the alarm.
