Customer Question
Do you know anything...

Do you know anything about the immobiliser system on 2003 merc 814?Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mercedes. The Mercedes Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Work for a bus company, several of the buses were broken into and keys stolen. All done apart from this last one. Need info on transponder etcTa

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I'm an electrician by trade and a master tech for Volvo truck & bus. Just need some specific immobiliser info.Ta
