Mercedes-Benz Start Error

A common issue with Mercedes-Benz diesel (CDI) vehicles is the erroneous synchronisation 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.

Symptoms

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.

Usually the engine control unit saves the error code P1630, which cannot be deleted afterwards. Sometimes the immobilizer system does not report any error codes but it still does not work.
