|Car||Mercedes-Benz Viano VITO111 2148cc Diesel Manual|
I have a 54 plate Vito 111 LWB Panel Van 2148cc Diesel Manual and when I enter my key in the ignition I get nothing the key wont turn therefore no ignition and I cant start the van.
I was told (by a Merc Dealer) "put the key in the ignition and hit the steering lock with a hammer" THIS DID NOT WORK I was then told by a mechanic to remove the steering lock and I would then be able to turn the key and start the van THIS DID NOT WORK
I have had problems on and off with the keyfob not locking and unlocking the van but when I suggested new batteries to the Merc Dealer they said the Keyfob was lighting up so it was fine.

there is a transponder in the key so if removing the iggy barrel you have to still put the key near the lock as there is an aerial to pick the key code.
