It all depends upon the time of the failure.
If it's after the car is fully warmed up and out of the blue it dies, but then you let it sit for a while and it starts up like there's no problem, I would check the Camshaft and/or Crankshaft Sensors. Most of the time when these fail there is no check engine light.

If it fails when you are trying to start it sometimes, then I would go for the Fuel Relay. Typically if it doesn't start, you can pull out the relay and tap it on its side on the ground, then reinsert it and try again. If it fires up, you've found your problem.
Hope this helps!

High idle benz 190e

Could be a defect in the ECU. But 1000rpm is not that high my cars normal is 1000rpm. but some older models were about 700rpm
The AC rise is normal. You may want to have a OBD II check by your garage or you can buy a unit to do this. It will scan the sensors fitted for any problems.

Engine shut down

The electrics in the Mercedes are notoriously flaky. A failing alternator would cause a low voltage condition that would cause the battery to run down but would not likely damage any of the computer modules. Have you REPLACED the fuses that protect the various fuel and ignition modules? Not just visually inspected, but REPLACED them? When I ran my Mercedes 123 series cars, I replaced all the fuses on Day One, regardless of how good they looked. Bosch fuses are known to corrode and cause intermittent problems similar to yours. If a fuse is overheating or the contacts are not good, a few minutes of driving could cause a problem that imitates expensive module failure. It happened with my Mercedes and my Volvos that used Bosch fuses.
