    IT SHUTS OFF AND THEN AFTER LETTING IT SIT FOR A FEW MINUTES IT WILL START AGAIN. DO THESE DIAGNOSTIC TESTS HAVE TO BE DONE AT DEALERSHIP AND APPR. COST?

The very 1st thing that needs to be done here is have a electronic engine control system fault code test, this is known as an OBD 2 test, that test will show a fault code that will lend direction to the finding and quickly fixing the problem, this is the 1st thing any shop does on any 1996 and up MB. The nuber of faults than can cause this stall number in the dozens, so guessing is not an option, just to expensive.

This is Limp Home Mode.
The engine is protecting itself from further damage.
Please have the OBD codes read and report back your findings.

Thanks

Orange engine light came on while driving, car lost power and stopped. Now it will not start at all . 2003 mercedes 280 E class. No previous problems.


Appears to be a cataycric converter issue. If you can get it to start, Take it straight to a muffler shop and have them test it first. Not just replce.
