Your english is fine and I compliment you; I undersatand you perfectly.

Can you start the car later in the day? You only said you can't start or turn the ignition first thing in the morning. This doesn't make sense that's the only time this happens because none of the parts you mentioned is temperature dependent.

"were the smartkey is introduce" I think is called the ignition control module and it might have gone bad. I don't think the mechanical key has a thing to do with it, but it could possibly be the smart key. Those have a limited number of cycles/codes and stop working eventually. I would begin by buying a new smart key. But before doing that, you might also try having the error codes read, post them here, or look in the stickys for the list of definitions.

Good Luck!

OK, thanks for the further info. That is not correct that they can't retrieve any codes if the smartkey does not turn. They only have to plug the car into a diagnostic port and there are two: one under the dashboard near the steering wheel (OBD2) and the other under the hood (for the Mercedes SDS (Star Diagnostic System). What are these German software keys you are talking about?
