Very pleased with the service. I arrived early but they were able to start work immediately and finished the job quickly. The full functionality of the new key was demonstrated (each button, the keyless aspect, the physical key aspect) so I left fully confident that a good job had been done. The price quoted was better than I was offered at my normal dealership. All in all, highly recommended!

Would have been a 5 if my emails had not gone into your spam and meant I did not get a reply for 5 days. Easy for you to sort out. Otherwise all very good, quote was clear, appointment quick and arrived on time and did good job.
Mr Mike Cox
My car is an Infiniti imported from Dubai and the main U.K. dealer was unable to programme a second key. The radio frequency used on an import is different from a domestic supplied car. Car key Solutions were able to source a key and programme to my car in a couple of days. the engineer did the job in half an hour and took me through everything to make sure the key worked correctly. I can thoroughly recommend Car Key Solutions.

Mercedes Sprinter Steering Lock Fix

Does your Mercedes Sprinter suffer from the following issues?

  • not starting
  • when inserting the key in the ignition switch, it can’t be turned
  • when attempting to turn the ignition on you hear a clicking noise but still can’t turn the key
  • it takes several tries before you can turn the key and have the ignition on
  • the steering wheel is stuck in lock position
  • central locking is not operating from the remote

 

Models affected: Mercedes Sprinter W906 M.Y. 2006-2013

Common issues: steering column lock faulty or faulty key

As the key and electronic steering column lock are parts operating on every cycle of ignition they will wear out and eventually fail.

What is a steering column lock and how does it work?

Modern vehicles are fitted with an electronic steering lock module which is an anti-theft device. It is fitted along the steering column usually about midway of it. The lock module is controlled by the electronic ignition switch. When the ignition switch module receives the correct identification signal from the key it sends a signal to the electronic lock to unlock the column.

Inside, the lock is engaged and disengaged by a mechanism operated by a tiny electric motor which is part of it. The steering column lock unit is personalised to the vehicle by programming and it can only be done once.

The very first columns locks were completely mechanic operated. General Motors introduced them on many of its products in 1969 drastically reducing thefts of these GM models, and on Ford, Chrysler, and AMC products in 1970
