Quality Mercedes Steering Lock & EIS Repairs for Waterlooville & Hampshire

Mercedes-Benz has a great reputation across the globe for the quality of their vehicles and the safety features that they employ. Among these features, two of the most popular are their steering lock and their Electronic Ignition Switch – often abbreviated to EIS. They serve a similar purpose, which is to prevent someone from driving your car unless they present the correctly programmed key. If the wrong key is used then the EIS will prevent the engine from firing up, while the steering lock will prevent the steering wheel from moving.
While these are both excellent safety features, should either of them, or your key develop a glitch, you run the risk of not being able to start the car yourself. Fortunately for customers in the Hampshire area, Absolute Autos Ltd is here to help.

Mercedes Steering Lock Repairs

Issues with the steering lock tend to come in two forms. The first is a glitch in the interface between your key and the onboard computer, which can be resolved by reprogramming the appropriate module or the key itself. The second is a mechanical fault, where the physical lock itself slips and refuses to budge. Fortunately for our Hampshire clients, we have the tools and experience to deal with both types of Mercedes steering lock repair.

Mercedes EIS Repairs

The Mercedes Electronic Ignition Switch is much like the transponder key system you find in other cars. If the onboard computer doesn’t connect with the transponder chip in your key or fob, the ignition will refuse to fire. Common repairs include replacing the battery in your fob, reprogramming the transponder chip, or realigning the key with the EIS module in your car's computer. We have the Mercedes-brand hardware to configure all these changes for you while you wait.
