This guide demonstrates how to utilize Autel IM608 pro II key programmer and G-Box3 to perform all key lost programming for a Mercedes Benz W207 on bench.
Step 1: Password Calculation
Choose the “Benz” brand and navigate to “Expert Mode” > “Password Calculation” > “All Key Lost (Fast).”
Review the provided diagrams and explanations, then proceed by selecting “Ok.”

It will prompt you to insert the LR key simulator (APB102/APB103) into the EIS. If already inserted, remove and re-insert it.

Once password calculation is completed, click “Ok” to proceed.
Step 2: Generate Key File
Go back to the menu and choose “Generate key file.” Click “Ok” to go on.
Ensure that you utilize the final slots for key programming; in this scenario, it should be key number 6.

You will receive a prompt to insert a new key. At this point, press “Ok” to proceed and then choose the key file saved earlier.
