Mercedes Benz Steering Lock or ESL (Electronic Steering Lock)
This device is used in Mercedes vehicles as a theft deterrent device. This electro mechanical unit will lock the steering wheel of the vehicle when not in use and shall unlock the steering wheel when the authorized key is used to start the vehicle. These units form part of the starting system and if the ignition switch is unable to communicate with the steering lock, the vehicle will not start. Software and hardware problems plague this unit and we are able to either rebuild your unit or supply you with a replacement unit. Our service is plug-and-play and no further coding is required at the vehicle.
