Had the same problem with my 380se. Mechanic couldn't figure it out. It turned out to be the OVP fuse that protects the electrical system from over voltage problems. It's a big red fuse in the fuse box and will cost you 50 cents.

The condition can also be caused by a faulty Idle Speed Control Module.

I'm not home, so I'm doing this from memory. It's toward the back almost by itself. It's a red fuse (red clear plastic top) 25amps, I think. It pushes in like a plug, not like the ceramic ones toward the front of the box.
