Ignition key slow to respond

Hi, I am new to this site and forum and would appreciate some advice, I have a Mercedes E320 cdi 2003 and I am experiencing problems with the ignition, when I insert the key there is a delay of approx 5-6 seconds before I can turn the key, I have tried the spare key and this although the signal is a little faster is almost as bad. Would it be the ignition or the key? Can anyone help?

Also the SRS light is showing when I have a passenger, is the sensor under the seat easy to change? Thanks in advance, Andy
