Question about 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420
Hva e had problems with the gas gage, the light comes on even when there is gas and the car will die, I drove it home and parked it one da, came outv the next morning and it showed no gas as teh light was on, and I put some gas in just in case, and it just turns over and does not start, it acted like it did at first, but just does not start at all, I'm thinking maybe a relay or fuse since it was an on goning problem with the lights and sensors???? What do you think?
Mercedes electrickery is complex and can be temperamental, plus it could have an anti-theft system to further complicate matters. It is entirely possible your car has more than one fault and possibly more than two...
Generally the fuel gauge and low fuel warning light has a separate circuit from the fuel pump even though mechanically they share the same space and could conceivably affect each other.
I suggest you put your preconceived ideas on the back burner and go back to basics. Check fuses, check supply voltages, check in the vehicle handbook whether there is an anti-theft system and so forth.

This could be caused by a faulty Crank position sensor. The computers are expensive for this and not something that commonly fails on these. Have the fuel pumpchecked for operation and pressure. Check for spark at the plugs. Then we can procede further if you would like.
