Let's test the battery. Turn on yout headlights ant try to crank engine.
If the headlights dim, the battery is dead. If the headlightd go out you have a bag connection.
Now if the battery is dead we need to start it to ck the charging ststem.
If the indicarion is a bad connection then the battery cables beed removing clean and tight reinstsllation( special attento both ends of boyj cables.
To ck altrnator engine must be running and uou need a 10 dollar multimer from a parts stor and then get back to me K?

A easy fix is to put a battery disconnect on the negative post if the battery. Somewhat of a pain but cheap fix for now. Most of the time there is a light that stays on all the time.

My 94 volvo GL die on me on the road. Took it to the mechanic and call me next morning that nothing is wrong. It start right quick. Couples days later will not start. Took it to the dealer for diagnostic...

Have the dealer look for soft codes and to check the connections to the starter and the battery and to check the alternator for proper charging. Volvo alternators have a circuit inside of them that when it goes bad it will cause the car to stop running without warning.

Why won't my 02' mercedes Benz sclass 430 START???

I guess all that's left is the ignition switch itself, or else the transmission is not completely going in to park. Next time it does it, try jamming it into park again, and see what happens. If no difference, change the ignition switch. Not the key and tumbler, the actual switch, which should be on your steering column, but given the fact that i am not that familiar with MB, suggest you ask at a parts place.

Persistent 'Battery / Alternator' Fault

Alternators are expensive parts, especially at dealerships. I'm inclined to agree with you, they should have got it right the first time. No shortage of tools with them, but in fairness to them, intermittent faults are the hardest to detect.
They might come back and say you need a new battery, although it does seem odd that a little testing the first time might have caught that.
Those are the two main items in the start circuit you are having trouble with. Well, the battery, the alternator, the starter and the ignition switch, those four items are the main parts of the start circuit. But with a good battery and an alternator to keep the battery charged up, it will crank over every time. Ideally, that means it will start and run.
