Problem with my 1997 c230

Ok, i have a 1997 c230 with 112,000 miles on it. i'm having a problem with the cars alarm or ignition. well actually i dont know thats why i'm writing this.

sometimes my car won't start. it starts up then it juss stalls as if a sensor is telling it to shut down. whenever i do get the car to start it drives beautifull. if its on it wont ever stall or turn off.

i've noticed that this only happens when i lock my doors, using the infared key. if i never lock the door, when i get back in the car starts perfect. but if i lock the doors, when i get back in the car dosnt turn on. i play with it for a while and eventually it turns on but does anyone have an idea of what it can be?

When you use the infra-controler to lock your car,this triggers a shutdown valve to close the fuel feed to the engin.
So by the looks of things when you open the locking system again (with the infr-controler)for some reason this valve is jaming and so the engine won't start.

When you keep pressing the controler a few times it may be reliving the valve.

check it-

Hope this is usefull,
