This answer was rated:

95 s420 wont start. Trams froze in 2nd engine rain in half speed. Mechanic tried ECU tested fuel pump. It turns over and "coughs upper harness looks good. Don't know about lower yet. Any thoughts? Thank you. Van
JA: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?
Customer: It tested full pressure according to my mechanic
JA: Are you fixing your S420 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: All the above was done by my mechanic
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Mechanic said wiring harness fried. But upper is Delphi 2006 so insulation should be rubber and no biodegradable. I hope😁

Hello, my name is***** and i will do my best to assist you.I am going over your story now and will reply back soon with some info,thanks!

first thing is to either check the fuel pressure or see if the engine will run off of starter fluid.

that will tell us the direction we need to go in.

also was the fuel filled recently before this happend?

how full is the fuel tank?
