Intermittent Starting Problem

Hi
Please excuse my lack of Merc knowledge but I am getting there, honest.
Can anyone help me with an intermittent starting problem I have with my Merc c 280, 1995 model.

9 times out of 10 she starts first time and runs great. However, at times the engine just turns over (very quickly) but shows no sign of igniting/starting!
It has been suggested that it could be a fault with the factory fitted immobiliser but I don't know. Is there any kind of test that I can do to prove or illiminate this possibilty.
Any help or advice would be great thank you.

The right prescription is a hookup to Star Tek computer and getting a written diagnosis. This would give a fair start point.

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
