Hi, I have a 2002 Sprinter. Need a key. one of the two I have broke, and I was able to get it out of the remote. Dealer says $50. for this. Is this my only option? Does this truck have to programed by dealer? I was able to get a ill mb 17 key blank . Had it cut but will only open doors. Any help appriciated. Thanks

Even though Andy says you can't do it, I would just try this method to see if it works (and doesn't cost anything except for your time)...

...before taking it to the dealer for programming.

Another option is hide the working remote near the ignition and use the key that you use to open doors to start the vehicle.

Ok, If I buy only the key and install it my existing remote it should work with out reprograming, right? Thanks
