I would contact the shop that you had your car at. This is a very strange problem since MB goes to extended lengths to make sure the right key starts the right car.

Yesterday, my mother turned off her 94 E320 Mercedes, and the key would not come out. She wiggled it and finally got it out, but the car would not and still will not start. Trying to find the problem as we speak.
