So you bought a replacement key, you tried to use it and it locked the antitheft feature. Yes, that is correct. The car sees any key that doesn't have the chip in the key that it knows as an attempt at theft. Call the dealership, and have them come out to you and program both keys and remove the block you have now.

If you only have one key, and the replacement was for a lost one, you can disconnect the battery for 2 hours, put the new key in the lock and reconnect the battery. It SHOULD re-pair the chips. I saw 'should', because the Mercedes Smart for Two is incredibly complex electronically. There are a lot of things only dealers can do and they are expensive.

Someone stole the keys to my cadalac elderodo 1994 I can't afford a new set of keys so how can I bypass the smart lock, which stops the car from starting.


Hi Sarah
I'd really suggest that you get some new keys. If you have your VIN info your dealer shouold be able to help you. Bypassinf the smart lock is an invitation to having the car stolen.

Smart for two X on dash, locks not responding.


Most probably you have a synchronization problem between key and the car.As signal is received since the signals are flashing , but security is not responding.
First , if you have a spare key , try it and see if that works. If not you need to reprogram the keys again. You can do that at any authorized Smart service center and it should not take much time to do it. Good luck

Locked out my 2000 S430


there is a mechanical key that slides out of your smart key. I beleive the release tab is at the base of the smart key. You can then put the mechanical key in the tumbler and unlock your vehicle.

Acura RL 2005 Smart Key problem


Does the car lock open with the switch on the door?  If it does not, it is not the key.
