If both stopped working at the same time, then im sure its in the shifter itself. The cable may need to be adjusted or replaced.
Please rate me.

when it wont start, turn your headlights on, see if they work if they dont, find out why. When it wont start, take a wire from the positive battery terminal and touch it to the small post on the starter solenoid, it should crank. If it now cranks, theres a problem between the ign switch and the starter solenoid.

sounds like your neutral safety switch is going bad, have the switch replaced, and have the shifter assembly checked out. if the neutral safety switch isn't working the vehicle thinks its in gear and won't allow the engine to turn, try starting it in neutral and see if it starts

Most likely culprit is the headlight relay under the screwed down cover on the fuse box. It is spendy but if you can find a used one in any W124 or W126 body style mercedes they are the same. it controls all lights as it also controls the bulb out indicator. The neutral safety switch would not allow your car to start if the lights wouldnt come on. Also replace all aluminum type fuses with newer copper barrel type fuses to get rid of any electrical gremlins due to corrosion.

Check your neutral safety switch. I had the same problem during a hard rain, hit a bump and everything went out.
