Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. More then likely, you are going to have to change the ignition module now. You may have broke the lock cylinder. Really, the only thing you can do now is check the obvious. You can try pushing the shifter all the way up, while in park. Apply pressure forward while trying to turn the key, if it is automatic. Apply with brake if necessary. All you can do is continue to mess with it. There are no specific tricks. Turn the steering wheel back and forth. That is about all you can do.

Reset your Mercedes-Benz key by placing the key in the ignition of your vehicle while the vehicle is turned off. Do not turn on the vehicle. Press a finger on the "lock" button of your key fob while the key is in the Mercedes' ignition.
Pull the key out of the ignition while continuing to hold the "lock" button down. Continue to hold the "lock" button for the duration of the key resetting process
Use another finger to push down on the "unlock" button five consecutive times. Keep holding down the "lock" button.
Release the "lock" button. This is the end of the resetting process for your Mercedes-Benz. Use your key fob to ensure it is properly working
