Any work done on the car lately? Does it start and turn off right away or does it run and then turn off. Check engine light on? Sometimes these vehicles have a crank sensor that may be the problem, but we would have to check it out for you to verify. If you have AAA you can have the vehicle towed to us tomorrow if you'd like and we can check it out. Let me know
It could be caused by many different things. You need to tow it to a repair shop and ask for diagnostic. They will be able to tell you. I'd suggest a MB specialty shop.

There are too many variables. It could be a crank sensor. Its best to have it towed into a shop and checked out thoroughly.
