Haven't had that problem on my Mercedes but have had it on 2 of my VW's. One was really sneaky - the negative wire to the battery from the starter was corroded inside the cable. After trying the usual things, a new cable solved the problem. You might want to use an ohm meter and check for resistance in the cables. The other VW did the same thing only this time it was the ignition switch wearing out - a new one corrected it. Have you tried jiggling the gear shifter slightly in and out of park or neutral to see if the engine starts to crank?? That might show if the neutral switch is intermittently not making contact. That is all I can suggest from my experiences
