Have you checked the OEM website?
Description of Repair unable to perform
Trying to purchase a vehicle key using the LSID SDRM process
Description of Information not available
LSID SDRM key aquisition process not working.
Description of steps taken to obtain information (help/contact function on website, websites, etc.)
Tried to use the system available on Startekinfo for aquiring a key with an LSID. The system would not allow me to complete it. I have spoken to Keith Luther at MBUSA and was told that the keys are not yet available but the process is under discussion. I have also spoken with David Lowell at NASTF and he is under the impression that keys should be available through the the LSID SDRM system.
Other Comments or Concerns
I am submitting this form to hopefully help get this key aquisition process working as it should. Thank you.
