I doubt it. Its incredibly expensive to fit aftermarket.

Assuming you mean a keyless go type stop/start on the gearstick.

id say that sort of thing yes but usually theyre added to the dash or similar, and most are only starter buttons rather than a full on 'on/off' set up which would be very involved and basically work in a similar manner to an old fashioned cut off switch (remember those from before the days of immobilisers?) used to.

even if it could be done with canbus systems (I'm sure it can be) it would be incredibly difficult, complicated, and probably very unreliable.

a simple 'Start' button, however, would be considerably easier to do, id imagine

I have seen one on a you tube vid fitted to a very nice late model w163, the ign barrel and key were done away with and replaced by an illuminated button and a couple of remotes ,chap actually used them to remote start the car.. sounds a bit naf I know but looked like a quality bit of kit. I imagine you would need to be a rocket scientist to fit it though:?.

I fitted an after market keyless start to my Smart Roadster. Very simple to do but it wasn't cheap.
Pretty sure it wouldn't work in a Mercedes.

Short press of the start button turns on ignition. Another short press turns off ignition.
Long press turns on ignition and starts engine. Another long press turns off ignition and stops engine.

The locking is all done via the EIS on most mercedes, I can see no way with this system to get the ignition on without the key. Even with keyless go, this talks directly to the EIS.

Hi,
I believe there are systems that will remotely start EIS equipped Mercedes they have been around for a number of years exactly how they work is a mystery.
Fitting of a start/stop button would seem to go hand in hand.
