Hey guys, my friend has a 2001 320 with 44k on it. he just called me saying that his car stalled for the second time. he was driving on the highway and it just died. i told him everything that we spoke about dealing with the CPS. he told me he was waiting on the side of the road with the hood popped for 30 min already. i told him to hang out for like 30 more min and give it a shot. he told me that the car would crank but would not start. his battery is fine and i guess his starter is good. what i told him to do is go under the fuel tank and just hit a few times with the key in ignition to see if fuel pressure would go to the engine and then try it, no luck with that. so i'm assuming it might be the CPS and for him to wait a bit longer, if not for him to get a tow. any other suggestions?? thanks

It seems like you had all the logical checks. I don't have any other ideas, but let us know what happened.

Too bad to just have the car die on the highway. At least it was a nice day.

MBs have roadside assistance for life. Did he call them? The number is written over the driver's side sunshade.
