Have you tried to start your Mercedes but nothing happened?

The chances are that the electronic steering column unit may be at fault.
This electronic steering column unit also referred to as ESCL was introduced by Mercedes on their cars in the early 2000s as theft prevention.  This module will lock the steering column as soon as the key is removed from the ignition switch.  Since the replacement of the old ESCL modules on C-class and E-class and due to its new design and features, it is causing a great deal of trouble more often than not to the car owners.
  Possible error codes that can be found when diagnosing the car are A25464, A25407, A25408, A25409, but sometimes it may be difficult to distinguish an ESCL fault from an ignition switch fault.  

Here at Car Keys Solutions, we have developed a procedure that enables us to replace and program your faulty steering lock using state-of-the-art programming equipment on the spot. The programming procedure at the main dealer will take several days due to the ‘green key’ or ‘workshop key’ (which contains unique programming software for the vehicle) needing to be ordered from the factory. Our Mercedes specialist equipment allows us to bypass this and carry out Mercedes ESL programming on the same day in a process which takes up to two hours. We’re also able to come to you and your vehicle if required.
We stock Mercedes steering column lock units (ESL) and Mercedes remote keys in the new style chrome finish, provided with the same day service.

This will save you the cost of recovery, a hefty main dealer bill and wasted time!
