2012 Mercedes Benz C230 all keys lost key programming with Autel MaxiIM IM608 successfully.
FYI, there is another problem that can also cause the switch not to open and that could be the steering lock module (ESL) but on this case the key was the issue, because I changed the battery in the key and it still did not work.
