sorry for my delay putting my kids to sleep.

The most common cause is the steering lock module that is mounted on the column has failed and hence the ignition will not come on due to the fact the eis(ignition switch) and lock module are not communicating.

the rectification is to replace the steering lock module then have it programmed by MB.

The vehicle must be towed to the MB dealer.

cost of this is about $800 area.

anything else?

if not.....

I try to be online 365 days a year.
