This might be a stupid answer but have you tried placing the key in the slot taking hold of the steering wheel and rotating the wheel back and forth at the same time gently turning the key
if this does not work you may find that and alien object have fallen into the hole and is prohibiting the key from a full incertion thus stopping it from being in teh correct position to turn

Sure it's not just in a bind? Parked on a slope or aginst a curb?Try to take the pressure off of the lock by turning the whaal a bit either way.

The Neiman blocker - the part from the key hub that block the wheel - has failed. To remove it the steering wheel must be dismantled completely and this is definitely a job for a shop - if you're not careful you can fry the entire electric system of the car.

Ignition switch on my c class mercedes has stopped working


check the shifter if it is an automatic and is not in park or neutral properly the the switch will not trigger, making the car think it is still in drive or reverse. Sometimes it is just to wiggle it a bit to trigger the safety switch, or can also be the steering wheel lock, sometimes there can be some friction on the unit and is just to let it off buy turning the wheel slightly to release it. you will have to do this simultaneously with turning the key as when you release the wheel the presser will return.

Mercedes c220 ignition key stopped working


Hi! Sounds like the key needs to be coded again, take all relvant details i.e. chassis vin number, Registration document (Title) and key to your local Mercedes Dealership and hopefully they'll rec-code it for youor replace it.
Good Luck and a Happy New Year to You and your family.
