yeah disconnect the alarm system from the car..... so many time when this happens the alarm system for some reason keeps the car from starting. if you can disconnet he alarm the car should start.

I had a 1994 pathfinder with the same problem. Direct wire the load pin on the starter solenoid to the positive terminal on the battery with a push-button switch between and mount it on the dash of the car. You will also need to disconnect the existing wire on the load pin of the solenoid and tape it up. This will allow you to engage the starter without the key using the push button, however, you will still need to crank the key to the start position while turning the motor over to give you fuel pressure.
Maybe a temporary solution for you but its worked on my pathfinder for more than 2 years.

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

The fuel shut off valve is not getting the correct amount of vacuum OR the fuel shutoff valve is failing.
You will need 1/2 to go over EVERY SINGLE vacuum line and check for leak.
Even it's look OK. Give it a little push to ensure 100% seal connection.
If this does not help then the vacuum switch next to the steering lock (behind dash) may be leaking or failing.
The switch is about $36 from the Mercedes dealer.
