Will follow progress. . . .
Have a '94 S500 cpe (below) and as far as I know, that's not typical for these cars.
So it looks like many parts have been replaced. Have these parts been replaced since the LAST cut-out? About the only thing you didn't mention is the "coils". That would cause that kind of problem and may not store a code.
PS: The ignition switch will cut the primary to the coils and result in the same cut-out. Also the Ignition Control module.
If your interested in DTCs, check my page (red house) for where YOU could get involved and probably fix it! There could be codes in the other modules, other than the Diag module.
