you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone also.one more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing fixya.com!

SOURCE: My car won't start has
I would try a different key, the Immobilizer on the Mercedes is reading the key and if your key is defective, they trying a different key may be your best options. Other options to try would be to Lock and Unlock the car with the Remote and then try and starting the car. If the above options do not work, then you are well past what you can do without the proper scanners and must bring it to the dealership and you will be in for a $500 - $2000 bill.
Sorry for the bad info
