M.B.DOC: Thanks for your speedy reply. I've been away for a few days, so could not answer you. Yes, the car would not start for the tech on the first occassion--that's when the problem was defined as the fuel pump relay. The second time the car acted up, it eventually started the next day and when we took it back to the tech, he concluded the fuel pump needed to be replaced. After the third occurrence (when I posted my message), I decided to change service facilities and had the car towed to the Mercedes Dealer. It would not start for them either. I gave them the receipts for the previous work, so they could see what had been occurring. Today they called and said it was fixed--"bad" fuel pump relay!! I guess it's possible, but 2 bad fuel pump relays seems unlikely, and may indicate some other component is causing the relays to fail. Guess I'll have to wait and see if it really fixed. Thks again for responding.
