1999 ml320 starter will not revolve


I am new to this discussion board, so hopefully I posted in the right place.

My Mercedes 1999 ML 320 will not start!

My story goes....
Tried to start the car, battery light came on ignition switched off.
Same day, could get the car to start after several attempts.

The next day, I drove the car and it worked fine.

After, several 'no cranks' the car was rolled to a shadier spot at the house.

replaced the fuel pump, but while checking the fuel pump relay, it fell and the car was without a fuel pump relay for a little while.

Now, the fuel pump has been replaced, the fuel pump relay was found. The car will not crank!

When I insert the key, everything works fine, when I turn the key to the 2 position several of the lights on the dash come on. When I turn it to start, the starter will not even revolve.

I kind of believe it could be the 'start lock out', does it sound like it could be this? How hard would it be to replace?
