2000 S430, 2000 S500 Both Brilliant Silver!
hey guys, i have a slight problem with my 00 s430. last friday i went to my car to start it, ignition turned over but it would'nt start. waited a few hours and tried again and she started right up. i took it to a benz mechanic on sat. he said the problem was that the check engine light was on for so long.(this problem, was diagnosed from dec. that it needed an air flow meter). i told him to put in a brand new air flow meter, the check engine light still did not go off. he then tells me that there were 24 codes that needed to be cleared and he cleared them,during that time the battery died, so i bought another battery. the battery was for a c-class and i was not surprised b/c it is a used car. on sunday the problem reappeard. she turned over but did not start. after about a few minutes she turned back on. now this is getting ridiculous. on monday i tried starting it @ 9am didn't want to turn on. she finally started @ 10am. on my way home the engine shut off completely and i sat there for ten minutes, then she started. i feel that it is an overheating problem or an electrical problem.today i discovered that when the temp gauge is between 80-100 degrees it won't start. i'm the fourth owner and the car has 112000 miles. i bought it @ 90000. thanks for your responses. help!!!!!!!!!please
