First thing to try (cheapest) is a brake light switch.

Similar situation with mine. It has done this twice, both when the lights are on which makes sense due to the higher current draw; once was last August or September, and then once in January. What I am trying to saw is it is only a matter of time. I just haven't made the time to get a brake switch.

another 99ml 430 problem!

Good morning all!!!!! Here is the story I have a 99 ml430 that started to Stop running with no warning lights or anything. after waiting 45min to an hour it will restart. Trying to restart it b4 hand it will turn over with it sounding like it is either not getting fuel or spark. I replaced the fuel pump from advice from a local Benz mechanic with no luck. I am thinking fuel filter next. any advice would be great!!!! Thank you!

Why post the same question twice????

Sounds like a very typical CPS (Crankshaft Position Sensor) failure.
