A common issue with Mercedes-Benz diesel and CDI vehicles is the erroneous synchronization between the engine control unit and the immobilizer system. This affects primarily the systems EDC15C0 (CDI1) as well as EDC15C6 (CDI2). If this is the case, the instrument cluster will indicate “Start Error” in older models, as well as in commercial vehicles

TEMIC immobilizer system was used on 2001-2006 / T1N W901 / Mercedes Sprinter (Dodge Freightliner) 2500 3500. Common issues are: no start, START ERROR on dash.
This, START ERROR repair service will test and synchronize keys, WSP and ECM. All codes and immobilizer counters cleared. The items will be Plug n’ Play and will require no additional programming. Old keys will work. Simply install the WSP and ECM, and start the car.
Vehicle does not start anymore and “Start Error” is shown on display in the cockpit.
Once the error occurs, the engine control unit stops communicating with the starter.

Test 1: You will have to check battery, ignition and ground to the WSP module.
battery pin # 3 on the WSP plug, from fuse # 5 (10A)
ignition pin # 7 on the WSP plug, from fuse # 7 (15A)
ground pin # 2 on the WSP plug
confirm that WSP has battery, ignition and ground
Test 2: Test the reason for ‘Start Error’ with a capable scan tool. Both the key condition and WSP-ECM sync has to be OK to start the car. In the example below Star Diagnosis is used to read the actual values from the WSP. The key is OK but synchronization between WSP and ECM is lost. Many other tools can be used to test this Autel, Launch, Snap on and other.
