Try disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes (negative lead off 1st / back on last)...might reset everything....

As Henry has mentioned....voltage...the battery on the beasts has to be tip top and 'Trans fail safe ' always pops up when the battery is in a poor state.....hence a non start

Sounds to me like your EGR isn't operating correctly or at fault....I run a 2011 sprinter and they are a nightmare for failing EGR's...changed it twice, 98k on the clock....I recall sometimes I had the rev range and pull and it would all of a sudden have no pull and revs wouldn't increase even with my foot flat on the floor....

Could be your MAP sensor.....situated at the rear of the intake manifold..if failing will give you low power out put and jerky.....

Three methods to try:

Method 1:

1. Working from within the vehicle and with the doors shut

2. Turn ignition to position 1 and back to off within 5 seconds.

3. Remove the key from ignition and press and hold the unlock button for 15 seconds during this time press the key lock button 3 times within 5 seconds.

4. Release both buttons.

5. Doors will lock and unlock to show correct programming has occurred.

 

Method 2:

To do this procedure you need to have one working key and one key that needs to be programmed.

1) Get in and close all doors.

2) Turn on the ignition and turn off quickly. (No more than 5 seconds) to start the process. Next action must take place within 30 seconds.

3) Remove the 1st key.

4) Hold the key up near your left shoulder (this is so it is closer to the remote receiver antenna.

5) Hold down the unlock button and press the lock button 3 times. Release the unlock button and the doors lock which confirms the operation.

6) Quickly repeat steps 4 & 5 for key #2 etc.

If it does not work, try doing the keys in opposite order. Key 2 then key 1, vs 1 then 2.

 

Method 3:

Alternate if you do not have a working remote

1. Turn key to position 1 five times very quickly 2. Remove key 3. Hold unlock button then press lock button 3 times, release unlock button.

4. If you have another key do the same button pressing within 30 seconds 5. Turn on ignition to finalise.

PLEASE NOTE: This programming procedure programs the remote control part of the key. Any transponder chip for the immobiliser (starting of car) will not be programmed and must be done by a specialist.
