There haven't been any reports of any continuous problems with the ignition circuit on your vehicle.

I have experienced similar cutting out of the engine intermittently while driving on my C220 - 94 model. How did you solve yours?

Yes...mine did this. It got so bad that I stalled-out on the freeway serveral times. I did a Mercedes Benz forums search on the internet. REPLACE THE K-40 Relay. THis fixes the problem. I don;t know what a K-40 Relay is, but Mercedes should know.
