Similar behaviour by my car was cured by fitting a new fuel pump relay...

Fuel pump relay...that's the FIRST thing you replace when a car dies randomly.

Behind the battery, there are two black relays about 3 X 2 X 1.. One will say Klima, you want the other one.

DO NOT buy the aftermarker KAE/Kahler crap from china. Get the Genuine Mercedes part.
