intermittent starting problem
 
I have a 1998 ML320 with 62000 miles. I am having intermittent starting problem lately. The dealer replaced the fuel pump two months ago but it does not seem to be the problem. It normally happens after driving for a while. It always re-starts after sitting for a day. It died twice while driving (at low speed, low RPM) over the past weekend. The engine cranks but would not start. The engine stay cranking for about 4-5 second by itself even I have released the key. The key does returns back to the normal ON position after releasing the key.

The car is with the dealer this morning. I spoke to the service manager. My impression is that he is not going to do anything unless he can reproduce the problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Same key? We saw a lot of AAM problems with the 99 163 and I replaced a bunvch of keys and transponder rings.


Quick thest for the key, carry 2 and if it fails to start, switch keys.

btw, tell that service manager to look for AAM transponder fault codes and DAS "start authorization" codes in ME.

I did try switching the key when not starting. No luck. Dealer told me there was no fault code registered.
