The light is most likely on due to some type of electrical fault within the computer controlled system on the car. You will need to have the vehicle scanned for codes to resolve this.

2000 clk Mercedes Benz check engine lamp

Lots of things can trigger the CEL (check engine light) and cause the vehicle to lose power. Without knowing what code(s) are stored in the computer, this is all jut a guessing game. Take it to a mechanic or pull the codes with an OBD reader.

2000 Mercedes CLK..I think it is a vapor lock starts as usual but 5-7 minutes later it just shuts down..happened in I dont dare to drive it..Afterwards it doesnt start unril...

Sounds like the crankshaft position sensor needs to be replaced. They are a common problem with the Mercedes. That sensor is the one that the engine control module looks at to see if the engine is running. When they get hot and stop producing a signal the engine control module thinks the engine is not running and shuts of the fuel. After waiting awhile they cool down and the vehicle will start up again. I've changed many of them when I worked at the dealer. Tricky part is when there working and the car is running there will be no check engine light on or code stored. Usually will only have the code when the car won't start. Let me know what you end up finding out on it but that would be the first place to look and probably the cheapest.
