Sounds to me like your car battery just does not have enough power to turn over the starter. Battery is not fully dead so you still get the fuel pump and dash lights on, but the battery requires more amps to turn over the starter. Try jumping it or calling for Mercedes roadside assistance for a jump.

We did try jumping it and replaced the crank position sensor Jump had no affect nor did the sensor.

Did you ever discover what caused your problem?
