I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful

it sounds like a broken wire in the engine wiring loom disconect the wires from the coil pack and and check for continuity from them to the engine controll module

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting. This will reset the system and may get it back to it's normal operation.
If the problem still persists, don't lose hope. If you happen to know someone who has a spare ECM then try a swap for I'm suspecting a computer issue here. If there's none, you may want to get one from the junkyard to cut the cost.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
