I have a 2005 E 500 mercedes that has been a wonderful and dependable auto. However all the sudden it started this malfunction where uou csn drive it 15 min and the engine will just shut off. Why?
Any warning lights on? Any other symptoms?
I would check the mercedes forums and see if anyone eles with a 05 E500 has had this issue and go from there.try: MBWORLD.org
No warning lights at all. The engine shuts off then all the cluster Lights come on
After half an hour or so it will restart with no pronlem
Well after a quick search it seems this is a common problem, and is caused by the crank shaft position sensor, they run about $60 bucks on ebay it requires a E8 torx and takes about 10 minutes to change out.
