Post 2002 Merc Komp C230 Crank issues....

I have a 2002 Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor with approximately 80k miles. I went on a 6 hour to trip to the beach a couple of months ago and on the way back home we noticed the air conditioner started pushing warm air. But that isn't the largest problem. When we got home we noticed that it was taking 30 seconds to a minute or 2 to start. It would crank, but not start until a specific time had passed. Sometimes it would crank and start up but run very rough, almost reminding me of a bad fuel mixture. Also sometimes on the VDO screen it would say check battery/alternator. However, most of the time after 30 seconds to a min. of cranking it will start and run find all day/night until you turn it off, then back to the crank issues. It has been at an import repair shop for a month and they changed the crank sensor and fuel filter to no avail. Does anybody have any ideas? I was reading through the forums about the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Could that be the problem. The import auto shop states that the computer is not showing any codes. What can I do/check? Thanks for all of your help.

P.S. One more thing, the auto shop said that it could be my remote key? Could this be the problem??

the other possibility is a fuel pump that is failing.
