Hard Start problem - 97' E320


My car is having this starting problem lately. Cold start seems to be no problem. But once the car gets warm, it can be hard to start. The starter will keep cranking and no sign of live. If it still does start after some cranking, i will wait a few minutes and try again. Then it starts. Once started, it runs prefectly fine. What could be the cause? Thanks!

When the car doesn't start are all of the dash lights comming on??
The electrical portion of the ignition switch can be at fault for this type of problem.

I'll keep on eye on it

I don't remember whether the dash lights are on or off. You mean all the warning indicators? I'll pay attention next time I have this problem again. It'll be soon. Thanks!
