Not sure about the 2015, but on the 2016 it's just a round plug you stick where the key goes. I can remove the plug and use the key to start the car if I want to, or if the battery in the fob dies. It may just be the plug that's needed. I know Keyless Go and Push Button start are two different features, you may be able to enable the push button start on your GLA.

I have Keyless-Go on my 2015, and when I picked the car up, there wasn't a push button in the ignition. They hustled around and found one. Probably all you need is the push button for push button start.

One dealer told me they don't install the push button until delivery because they had a habit of disappearing from the vehicle!

I suspect they stole mine from some other car. Unfortunately I have the Becker Map Pilot. If I had the Garmin, the sales lady was willing to give me the SD card for free-she had some in her desk. Worth asking for if you are picking up a car that has Garmin but no SD card.

I wish I had your sales person! Mine wanted $600 for the SD Card! I ended up getting one from EBay for a of that! Some dealerships really put a premium on those little SD Cards!

I found this Mercedes Benz Start/Stop Button on EBay for $19.99 with free shipping!

They say this button is for Keyless-Go. Are there two different buttons, one for Keyless-Go and one without?

I don't know about the 2015 model, but I don't think there is any difference in the 2016 model. We looked at both with and without Keyless Go, decided Keyless Go was a must have, but both vehicles did not have the push button installed during the test drive. We were told, however, that both would have push button start. At $19.99, it might be worth OP taking a chance and seeing if it works.

The button unit doesn't make it keyless go, the car needs to be built at the factory with it. But the "button" is universal, just ask your dealer to let you borrow a button and see if it works. If it does he owes you a button, if nit you're out of luck. No need to buy one. Keyless Go needs to communicate with the key in your pocket to allow the button to work. Sounds like your dealer is giving you the run around.
