1998 mercedes benz a160 power steering not working

Power steering was good then i turned on the car and it was hard to steer. still drove it like that and at a stop light all lights came on and the car turned off, after 10 minutes or so the car turned back on but it would not go when i pressed the gas pedal. felt like an electrical short or something because even the lights went dimm and I had to push start the car after that.

I have problems with front tyre wear of a mercedes A160 20l cdi .wear is on outside left and inside right tyres no matter how often i have tha steering linned

You need to have the front end checked for worn parts like ball joints or tie rod ends and if all is OK then it needs to be aligned. Use a shop that has a experienced front end alignment tech. Tire shops are good choices here.

It sounds like the steering wheel is binding up the ignition. While turning the ignition key, turn the steer wheel back and forth. You will need to apply a bit of force to turn the steering wheel to overcome the binding.
