Chicago, IL (11.27.11) SmartKey Starter® for Mercedes-Benz now features compatibility with ML series SUV’s as late as 2012. The new SKS164 provides a plug and play connection to the vehicle’s wiring, allowing the driver to remotely start their vehicle by pressing the panic button on their factory smart key, or select long range remotes.

Optional plug & play add-ons include extended range 1-way and 2-way remotes, giving the driver up to one mile of operating range. Also available, are smart phone interface modules with iPhone, Android, and Blackberry compatibility as well as desktop web browsers.
