use another key the key may be where the fault lays if this is the case have the dealer cut another at their expense, the excuse of a break in period is BS

Most likely the sprinter with no dash lights or anyting, if it is a 2007 or newer, the steering column lock module has either failed or is jammed. This will prevent the key from turning. Seems weird but its the truth!

I am having same problem did u get it fixed and what was the problem. I was told it was either the electronic steering lock or the ignition where the key goes in. this part is 1000 bucks in canada and the steering lock module is 400 bucks any help would be appreciated

Have the same stupid problem.right in a midle of a service call.No more sprinters for me..Lucly I bought the extended waranty.So far this truck would have cost me $8000.00 in repairs if not for the waranty...Not Counting the lost time. And the money I could've made in the same time it was in the shop. Very upset

Greetings, I have a 2007 Sprinter 2500 diesel. My problem: my engine light comes on and the turbo will not function. two years ago a dodge dealer replaced a couple electronic devices & it worked for a while. I went to a freightliner dealer & got the same diagnosis & the same fix. It failed on my 30 mile trip home. Fixed again & worked for a few weeks. Four weeks ago it began working on it's own, however I just took a short trip to Home Depot. When I started the vehicle to leave the engine light stayed on & the turbo does not work. It runs fine, it just has no power. I can drive it on the freeway, but of course it takes time to get up to speed.
Anyone got any ideas what is shorting out on this van? Thanks in advance.

Jim look under air filter box there is a tube that come out of turbo over the valve cover in to a black box. Where it connects there is a black gasket. I can bet it has gone bad and the truck thinks there is a major problem with turbo so it goes in to no turbo mode. The gasket was 40 bucks at dealer and I also replaced the o ring on the bottom side of the black box. Solved the problem for me. Same issue.
