The age of both cars tells me the EIS has to be swapped along with the Engine Control module.

There may also be a need to swap the Electronic Steering Lock as well. These are paired to their EIS switches.

If possible swap the EIS, ESL and the Engine ECU.

mb car tech is correct. the eis,esl,ecu,key all have to be changed. all from the same car and you will not have a problem.
