Question about 1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
If the key won't turn in the ignition, it could be for a couple of reasons:
- Often this happens when the steering is locked by the ignition lock with the front wheels turned aside (e.g when parking on a hill); or,
- when one of the front wheels is pushed against something (e.g curb stone). In this case, try turning the steering wheel left and right while gently jiggling the ignition key - this might help.
Another possibility is that there is a problem with the ignition lock or the key itself. This happens, the key and the lock mechanism wear over time. Try to use a spare key. If nothing works, your local dealer is the best place to call.

Sometimes wiggling the shifter also will help get the ignition switch to turn.
