Odd....the other day I tried to start my MB..nothing, just cranked continually, like it wasn't getting fuel? I let it sit for awhile, then she just fired right up?????
Today, same nonsense, but with no luck getting it to fire off? Do I guess......ignition?.....fuel pump?
Donny, BenzMac and other gurus........any help would be most appreciated!

When cranking it for a few seconds try turning it quickly back to the on position. If this works then tou have a worn out ignition switch. If you have an extra body around check for voltage at the coil while cranking. A five dollar trouble light is sufficent if you dont have a volt meter.
