Q: how do you start car if steering column won't lock and car won't shift on 1999 Mercedes-Benz E320

key won't turn and the steering column won't lock. It seems as if the shifter and the steering column are out of sync. Help!

I think the key was pulled out before the car was in park first.

I have 144000 miles and the car is in good shape
