Welcome back, when the car does this its because there is a malfunction with the CAN data bus system. Either a module has failed and is taking down the communications or there is water entry and causing a short on the data bus . We would need codes scanned with a mercedes capable scan tool to get a readout from each and every module to be able to try and locate the fault .
