Hi Im David, its Passenger side, just fwd of the firewall under the plastic cover (engine bay)

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
One common component that can fail on this model here and cause an issue like this is the electronic steering lock itself.This lock is located on the side of the steering column about 1/4 way down from the steering wheel.I have had to replace this lock for issues like this here.In some cases you can tap on this lock while inserting and removing the key to get it to make its buzz noise then it should start and run (assuming it is the lock for sure here).Below it is shown near 5s in the diagram.Usually the column cover needs removed to access it.
Mercedes has released a bulletin on this lock at fault.Bulletin number LI80.57-P-051521.
