So I have poured over the forum threads looking for related issues. Car starts and runs for about 15 minutes then it shuts down and won't restart for bout 30 minutes to an hour. My first instinct is Ckps but the code stored is p01570. I know for a fact that Ckps won't show in error codes have had 3 cars do the same dang thing. The car is a 99 c280 sport 2.8v6. I checked all fuses everything seems to work inside lights seats and so forth the scan with my Apollo d8 only brings the one code...

Welcome SyntheticD,

Have you seen this?

Also, were you scanning only at the obd2 port?
What about at the 38pin?
Not familiar with your scanner though.

P1570 Possible Causes
  • Incorrect/damaged key
  • Key incorrectly coded
  • Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
  • Faulty immobilizer
Here's my 2 cents worth...

It could be any of the above and also a wiring issue or a fuse as mentioned in the above link , doubt it's either of the latter two. First thing I would do, as it's easy and costs nothing, disconnect the alarm siren (driver's side front wheel arch next to the bumper). You can also try disconnecting the battery for 30 mins and reconnect.

After that I'd get a new key...then I reckon you'll need the assistance of a Merc specialist.

Honestly I just wanna keep this car running but I'm not spending ungodly amounts of money for 150 dollar car... Plan is to use it for the gambler 500. So if it comes down to getting a new key I'll sell it as is.

Well, two of the suggestions I made will cost you nothing!

Ok so I just noticed as I went to check the voltage at the battery while running the positive terminal is getting hot like untouchable hot. Not the terminal itself but the 3 larger gauge wires connected to it

That's not looking very healthy to me.... poor connections case heat at the positive terminal that's either janky or ready to burn down the car....i have a spare terminal is it ok to bind all those wires together and put them in a new terminal...?

As a update the code hasn't returned and the car died once for a second but came back on. The code still didn't return... I'll leave for the night and try again tomorrow

What is the general condition of the car? Is this a total POS?

If so just sell it and don't bother if you already feel spending $150 is too much.

As of now the car still shuts down and starts once it cool down.. during the no start there's no fuel pressure. If that's any clue still no codes storred or present.

More updates seems I can hurry the process of waiting for the restart along fast but inserting the cycle to on for a minute turn off do it again after 3 to 4 times I can hear the fuel pump kick on and then it will run for as long as I let it..... Such a strange thing...

So....... I'm pretty sure checked fuses really well. But the 23 fuse under the hood was blown replaced it along with the cps and now it's been running for about 45 minutes
