    Better late than never.....
    I myself am now on the lookout for reasonable price reprog of whatever accepts the keycode (sam?). AND I think a few pints of good ale is a storming idea, and would feel honour bound to join in; be rude not to!
    But seriously,,, bought a car thats been stood, battery died and now replaced, key turns dash lights on, locks tailgate via keyhole, but will not lock or unlock the car, battery in key changed of course. I have been handed a bag of spare keys too. Now, if anyone can help, and even a non drinker (we can sort something else out no doubt) I would love to hear. Car is an 02 passion 450 600cc. Also, anyone know how much it may cost to replace a starter motor on this? I am in Crewe, Cheshire.I have a trailer so can shift it within reason if necessary. Decided to post here as its a relevant thread. Cheers folks. BTW I also have a complete car-a-tow A frame surplus to requirements for the abovefor sale too.

    I am in Burnley. Bit far but if you don't get any offers closer I suppose it's worth the trip.

    I will remeber the starters etc,, but a bit far off for the programming tho. might be in touch if the starter is kaput (I too think alternator- had one last year do that so have see it and believe it lol). I have a load of keys, ones from the car and spares. How much a starter- think its a pig to fit so would have a willing volunteer do it!!

    Just to add a nugget of info to this thread for people needing keys programmed ...

    My 450 forgot it's keys (and also had it's key reader die) which was a bit of an issue as I'm in New Zealand and there are no Smart delaers here and Mercedes wanted my kidneys to reprogramm the car to the keys, so I picked up a Delphi DS150E from aliexpress (NZ$50) and key reader from Ebay, waited the 3 weeks for it to arrive and then programmed the car to the keys myself .. easy peasy!
    Also does a few other functions for the Smart (clutch re-teaching is very handy!)
    (just try to overlook the "legit" software they ship with the Delphi ... and that the Delphi might be a knock off too)

    Question Re: Anyone got a Star machine, I need my key reprogramming

    Hey Mark,,, I did the same thing, bought a DS150e. Now need to jump thru the hoops getting it installed, all the instructions are, is 'not very helpful'. I see videos on the net, but mostly the same one- loads of frames with nothing happening, the important bits then zip past too quickly. And the keygen is suspect- don't know if it works. How did you install yours? Mine is IIRC v2015.3

    I am still looking for good reliable info how to install. Then, of course, we come to how to use it.......!

    I gave up on 2015 and went back to 2013/14.

    You tube instructional videos are one of the bad things about the Internet, they truly suck at teaching anything.

    I am going with 2014r2 I think. May be a while before I get time to do so. I'll keep looking at the 'tube, just in case!
