    Is this a late model W203 or early W204?

    If its the W204 I would say the steering lock has failed and the EIS system is not reading the key, quite a common problem.

    No start issue ok, if the battery is totally discharged/dead then using jump leads won't make a difference, check battery for servicebility, replace or trickle charge.
    If it's a auto, did you turn it off in gear, remeber it won't start unless it's in park lol
