Mercedes-Benz C280 "Crank no Start" Due to Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor

(11 reports)

The crankshaft position sensor may fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance.

i had the same problem, it was hard to diagnose, the car stalled at traffic lights and needed half an hour to start again and then it would start and run like nothing happened.. the crank shaft sensor was the culprit. we changed that and now no problem.. ps.. we first thought it was a fuel related problem... -
STARTS RUNS ABOUT 30 MIN THEN STALL . YOU MUST WAIT ABOUT 30 MIN THEN IT WILL START AND RUN THIS CYCLE JUST WILL REPEAT. I'VE CHANGED BOTH THE CRANK AND THE CAM SENSORS AND IT STILL STALLS -
