Mercedes-Benz Electric Steering Lock (ESL) Failure: Symptoms and Solutions

Experiencing issues with your Mercedes-Benz’s electric steering lock (ESL)? At Mr Ignition, we specialise in diagnosing, repairing, and replacing faulty steering locks to ensure your vehicle remains safe and functional. Serving Surrey, Sussex, South London, and Kent, our expert team is here to address any ESL problems you might encounter.

Symptoms of Mercedes-Benz Electric Steering Lock Failure

A failing ESL can present several symptoms that affect the functionality of your Mercedes-Benz. If your car exhibits any of the following issues, it might be due to a faulty steering lock:

  • Repeated Ignition Attempts Needed: You need to turn the key in the ignition several times before the dashboard lights come on.
  • No Dashboard Lights: The key turns in the ignition, but no dashboard lights appear.
  • Steering Remains Locked: The steering remains locked even with the key in the ignition.
  • Steering Unlocks Without Key: The steering lock is off with no key in the ignition.

These symptoms can appear suddenly, gradually worsen over time, or start after a flat battery or jump-starting another car. If you experience any of these issues, it often leads to the inability to start the engine.

Most Commonly Affected Mercedes-Benz Models

While ESL failures can occur in various Mercedes-Benz models from 2001 to 2016, the following are the most commonly affected:

  • W204 C Class (2007-2012)
  • W212 E Class (2008-2012)
