Before going to change your Ignition Switch or even your starter, replace the Neutral Safety Switch first, most likely located underside of car, driver's side of transmission.
The Neutral Safety Switch also incorporates the Back up Light Switch on some MBZ.
Sometimes, if this is defective, you could still start the car on the Neutral position but eventuall it would not even start anymore in Neutral. I am just sharing you what I went thru. Let me know if I can help you with the part.
