      I bought a Mercedes a-class just before Christmas with gear box troubles so I replaced the gear box and shifter (gearbox was slipping and somebody played with the electronics in the shifter). After replacing them I took the car out for a test drive but i had a problem getting the shifter in to drive after stopping to put fuel in so located the problem to be the brake pedal being worn where it pulls the cable to the gear box and the shifter. Since changing the transmission I have not been able to remove the key from the ignition lock but I was able to remove the key after I changed the gear shifter because I thought that was the issue so after further testing the gear box was replaced and the key wouldn’t come out.
      Any ideas would be great full thanks

            To me it sounds like your PRNDL switch is not adjusted correctly. If the vehicle does not read that it’s in park the interlock will not allow you to remove the key. This is a safety feature to prevent you from leaving the vehicle without putting it fully into the park position. The link in the post above also points to a possible issue with this switch and given that you just had the transmission out, I would say that’s the most logical place to start.

            Keep us posted on what you find.

              Thanks for the replys. I found the problem to be the ignition barrel so it was replaced after some advice from a friend at my local mot garage who had came across this problem on a couple of other Mercedes before.
