I had same problem on my s500 95 ASR light was going off and car was loosing all power so I had to restart the car. None could find a problem I was told that is brake switch, gas filter, gas pump and in the end mechanic at MB dealer said that is 100% computer ($3000). I went home and tried my self and looking the accelerating cable (cable that goes from pedal to the engine) which when you press from engine side car loses power and ASR light goes off but by pressing pedal inside the car with your foot every thing works fine. i fond that it was cracked and very hard to see it. this cable is hard plastic and usually brakes near nut that is used to adjust the idle. I replaced it and had no more problems. Try by checking it maybe is the same one in your car.
