Why will C230 run fine then die and not start?


Asked by Aug 11, 2016 at 07:33 AM about the 1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 4 Dr C230 Supercharged Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 1999 C230 that has died while driving.  Random as far as might be
at light, might be on highway at 70 MPH.  Here's the kicker, only does it in
the afternoon on really hot days say above 95 deg, and ignition will not
even turn over for about 25 mins (no crank no start).  Battery power is
good 12.3 not running and 14.0 after start.  Flashing no codes and the CPS
has been changed.  Has to be something common to the crank and run
circuit, but all connection are good and everything tests good.  Any help
would be greatly appreciated before I get it on interstate again.
