SAME THING HAPPENED TO MY DAUGHTERS 92 400E...TOOK MONTHS TO FIND PROBLEM...IT TURNED OUT TO BE THE THROTTLE BODY...ITS EXPENSIVE...FIRST REPLACE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH ON BRAKE PEDAL AND GAS PEDAL SENSOR SWITCH ON UPPER GAS PEDAL ARM...MAKE SURE BATTERY IS CORRECT BATTERY...IF YOU TAKE TO M/B SHOP THEY CAN READ WHATS STORED IN COMPUTER TO HELP DIAGNOSE PROBLEM...ENTIRE CAR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS PRETTY SENSITIVE AND TURNS ON ASR SYSTEM GIVING LIMP HOME MODE. JUST BE GLAD YOU ARE NOT ON A FREEWAY AT 7OMPH WHEN THE ASR TAKES OVER CAUSE YOU COULD CAUSE A SERIOUS WRECK...HEED MY WARNING AND GET TO MB SHOP...MB HAS LOTS OF TROUBLE WITH THROTTLE BODY FAILING.
