Mercedes Sprinter "start error"
Not only the other day I was singing the praises of Mercedes Sprinters Reliability.
Went to start the engine today and "start error" came up in the dash LED.
We had this problem before, a certain someone is always dropping her copy of the keys and had lost the immobiliser chip out of the key.
Chip is still intact this time!
Tried spare set and same fault "start error"
I have contacted my Nephew who works for Mercedes, he spoke to the van mechanic who said it could be anything from keys, spikes, wsp, ECU, burnt out wire.
He suggested I contact my insurers (safeguard) and call breakdown. However, it is Friday and I don't fancy having it stuck on their forecourt all weekend.
So it is stuck on the drive for now, unless someone can help me out?
Need to check what I am covered for on SafeGaurd too!
