Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is***** problem you are experiencing is most likely caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor. The sensor tends to overheat and stop working after running a short time and cause the stalling. Disconnecting the battery cable for awhile gives the sensor time to cool down and it will typically start working again. You will need get the ignition system tested when the car won't start. More than likely there will be no spark to the spark plugs. If that is the case I would replace the crankshaft position sensor. A diagnostic test should also be performed to check for fault codes in the engine control module. There will usually be a fault code stored for the crankshaft sensor malfunction.
