Question 1995 E320 Cranks but will not start - some times

I have a 1995 E320 with 77k miles. Several times over the past 12 months I have had problems with starting. Engine cranks but will not start. In most cases I let it sit for 45 to 60 minutes and it starts right up. Seems to be getting worse.

I had it towed to indepent shop. No spark out of all three coils. Checked grounds, seem to be OK. (no problem with fuel). Car sat over night and started up. They are suggesting HFM unit and sent me to Dealer.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Is it an original wiring harness? Do a search on "wiring harness" and read all about it. If it is the original harness it may be time for a new one.

First check is OVP Relay..
See if it has been up-graded to the new part # 000-540-67-45..
Next time it does not start, tap relay and re-try..
