Purpose: add a Mercedes infrared key via OBD without having to disassemble anything.
Tools use: Xtool X100 PAD3 + KC501 Chip and Key Programmer
I have two keys in my hand, the right one is the new key and the left one is the original key.
To test the two keys before an operation, the original key can start the car and the new key can’t.
