!st by changing your remote batteries you need to resynchronize your key. I believe you place it in the ignition turn and then remove and press your unlock button. The procedure will be in you manual. It almost sounds to me that the linkage is out on your trans and the car is not all the way in park. Look under neath and see if your shift rod is dangling from your trans. Next if it is not try starting the car in neutral. A common failure for that era is the shift box which allows the vehicle to start. Another problem could be is that your parked on a hill and steering son't come unlocked if this is the case crank on your wheel hard to allow key to turn. If all else fails call M.B. roadside it should be free

I had the same problem with my 1997 Mercedes Benz C280, the problem was the catalytic converter and ignition coil or spark oil.
