Try pressing the key down little bit while you are trying to turn it towards ignition, at the same time slowly turning the steering wheel clockwise and counter clockwise ( it's locked but it still moves a little bit), it should release the steering wheel lock. hope it helps
p.s please rate the answer if you found it helpful, i need it for my ratings, thanks!

SOURCE: why won't my ignition key turn over and my steering wheel is locked in place at the sametime?

I'm assuming you mean your key wont turn in the ignition. first off check to make sure the car is in park. then what you gotta do is put in the key and put a little pressure as if turning but dont turn too hard, then even though the steering wheel is locked you will have to try to move it a little, if you parked with your tires turned then you will want to try to turn the wheel in the same direction, (even locked you should be able to move it about a half inch) you will have to turn the wheel hard but it should move enough to allow the key to turn, you may have to jiggle the key a little in the ignition but it should eventually turn, just remember not to try turning the key too hard, the extra force wont make it go but can cause the key to break. this tends to happen when you turn the car off andthe steering wheel gets locked if the wheels are turned hard in either direction. also if multiple attempts at this still dont work, try taking the key out and turning it over and trying again. Even though both sides of the key are identicle, because of wear on the key and the ignition, sometimes when the wheel locks the ignition, it will only turn if the key is put in a certain way. Hope this helps, good luck

98 c230 key won't turn and steering stays locked...can't move car....help!!!


first replace the battery in your key and have a look if you have any additional key try by that key it may work if without right diagnose no one can find it's faulty key or electronic ignition switch, if not the fault in key possibly faulty steering lock or electronic ignition switch, in this case you have to get your car in to the Mercedes workshop for diagnose.

KEY WON'T TURN TO START CAR. STEERING WHEEL LOCKED, WON'T GO TO NEUTRAL EITHER.


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.

Steering wheel tilt lock on a 2004 c230 coupe not locking


There is a electronic motor that is attacked to the steering wheel to allow you to adjust it, I would not get involved in that location if you have no working knowledge of the vehicle. The Air Bag wires run up and down the channels near the steering wheel and can cause deployment if you are not careful, take it to a mercedes technician to help you out.

Try this, it is the procedure for resetting the ASSIST computer on many Mercs

2…Turn the key to position No: 0 in the ignition / steering lock. Then release the button.
3...Press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) and turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock. Keep button pressed
After about 10 seconds
the service indicator will reset and an acoustic signal may briefly sound
That should do it....Good Luck…...Let me know if it works?
