1999 c280 just dies please help me

my mercedes will randomly just die on me either idleing or driving and will not restart untill i wait a lil while like 10 15 min. I thought it might be the fuel pump relay so i replaced it and it did nothing. i started the car and popped the trunk and sat back there and waited for it to die so it did and right till it died the pump was going and right after it died the relay clicked off! Does anyone know of a common problem with the car? like the key or factory alarm system?
