Berliner station wagon 2005
My 2005 is doing the same thing , if l crank it at the starter motor with the ignition on the motor turns over, l then replace the exciter wire, the car will then start with the key. The car will then start from the key all , but the next day , the same thing , any ideas out there that could help.

Slug powered VZ, Cross 8 VZ, VE Calais & ya mum.
Neutral safety switch on the gearbox could be playing up as another possibility.

Starter motor could have crapped out is another.

You can jump the starter relay. I recently posted how in a thread I started for my FIL’s VZ not starting.
Some searching will find how others have done it too.

Ultimately you need a high end diagnostic tool plugged in to see what the car is doing.

Also, why was the car on a tow truck to start with?
To quote myself.

FIL's VZ has sorted itself out. Just started normally more and more often as the car was once again used more.
