Need some serious help- car turns off while driving
This issue has been driving me nuts, I have no idea what is going on.
The car turns off while driving - first time it happened during taking a turn, lost all its power for a second and turned right on by itself
Now- it turns off while driving and doesn't turn on until I completely stop the car , put it in park, and restart it- then it drives normally
I brought the car into a indy shop, they said it was a fault ignition starter and only mercedes can fix it. Onto mercedes, they have had the car for 2 days and cannot read any codes from it
Yesterday I was told I can pick up the car at no expense (diagnose fee waived), and the second I pull out of the parking lot it shuts off! I brought it back, went for a drive with the mechanic at mercedes and it didn't shut off on me.
I got a call today- they have checked everything from ground wires to fuel pumps and couldn't find anything wrong with it.
I have already replaced the Crankshaft sensor and the problem still occurs. It's a 2003 SL55 AMG with 47k miles
Any help appreciated.
