Hello Victor,
Original starter has a special relay on it, which is checked by ECU. So if non-original starter was installed- it can cause such problem. I cannot tell the resistance or exact schematics, but aftermarket starters may not fit the a-class with original immobilizer.
One possibility if you are in UK, to have it completely removed from ECU by this company:
