2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS500 Question: Car Cuts Off



Visitor, Milton, FL, April 15, 2010, 17:13

No warning and no warning lights but the car had gotten to when driven short distance and then stopped and turned off, when attempted to recrank it would not. After cooling a few mins it would again crank and run. After these times the Check Engine light would come on and stay on a little while then go of. Then it got to where it would cut off at red lights, after 20ish mins it would crank. Now yesterday i had just cranked the car, drove couple miles and it cut off. Again after 20 mins it cranked and I drove home.

    You probably have a malfunctioning crankshaft sensor, it's a known issue with these cars. I had the exact same problem with my 99 SLK230, I had to get it replaced for $189CDN.
