w447 vito doesnt start after crash

hey guys, iv got a 2016 vito that doesnt start after been involved in a accident. both airbags deployed etc.
when i try to start from the van battery i get nothing which expected as its a safety feature in the event of an accident. so if i use an external power source i,e, a booster then itll start and drive.
im under the impression that the pyro fuse is probably blown but i cant find the location of this around the battery nor can i find any information regarding this online. cant even find a part number as mercedes parts haven't even ever heard of a pyro fuse?!
getting a scanner soon so ill be able to see whats going on the the ECU
anyone have any experience with this van or could help me in the right direction would be much appreciated.

cant edit above but i have found the location.
under the driver seat in front of the battery there is a fuse box. the seat needs to be taken out and the complete fuse box needs to be removed. you can if you want open this to see and test the starter pyro fuse but if its blown you cannot purchase separately. you need to purchase the complete fuse box (around 120). if you need more help on this just give me a shout as information on this issue for this particular vehicle is incredibly scarce
