checked fuses, now key wont work c230 help please

I have a good friend with his first mercedes a 2002 c230
he went to inspec it and the check engine light came on. car still ran fine but wouldnt pas because of that, he is used to olde cars so he drove it home, pulled and checked ALL the fuses one at a time, finding only a blown fuse on the cigar lighter. after this he tried to start it.. the key wont even turn now and the remote lock and panic buttons dont work.

is there any way to reset it? the car was a gift from his father in law and he and his wife have 2 babies and not a lot of money to take it to mercedes, though he is really good at servicing his own vehicles, this has us all stumped.

he has tried replacing the battery in the car, and the key and cleaning the lens on the ir sensor,checked and reseated all of the fuses again.. i am hoping there is a simple way of resetting it? please advise. its a really nice car otherwise but useless right now.
