MR EDY STANLEY
The man turned up exactly on time, and he wasted no time getting on with the job. The van was fully equipped with everything to complete any job he was given. His phrase was “trust me “ and he only completed the job of getting my daughters car back on the road, when he was satisfied, it was ready to hand it back to me. Although a little expensive, I suspect it would have cost a lot more getting Mercedes to come out and do it. More than happy to use them again if unfortunately a situation like that were to happen again.

Very prompt service. Young man was very polite and explained everything perfectly and also very thorough. Showed me how everything now worked properly. I also received phone call to say there may be a delay due to traffic (which wasn't a problem for me) but it was nice to be informed. All round, very satisfied and would recommend.

It was absolutely fantastic service. My only car key broke and I was stuck on a Sunday morning. Spoke to them on the phone and van man arrived almost at the said time and made a new car key for me. Very good service! Hope I don’t have to use them again but would highly recommend !!

Excellent service from the technician, who was friendly and knowledgeable, and was kept up to date with his arrival from Victoria who was very professional and a pleasure to talk to
Ms Zuccareli Delfine
Very flexible and professional. I used them before and was very satisfied that is why I called them again. My car had problem with the OBD reader and it took them longer than expected but they didn't charged me more. I will definitely use them again.

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
