Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Did you drain the gas tank? The gas is _baaaad_ after a year.
If it is very low on gas, you can skip draining and add 10 gallons of _Premium_ gas. After adding good _Premium_ gas, disconnect the gas line to the motor, and crank the engine to pump out about a quart (to clear the lines of bad gas).
It wouldn't hurt to add a couple of cans of ''dry-gas'' (water remover) to the tank _before_ adding the 10 gallons of _Premium_ gas.
Then it should start. If not, remove spark plugs and make sure they are not wet with bad gas. If so, crank the engine with no plugs (mark the wire numbers) to air dry the cylinders. You can use a lighter to dry the plugs (be far away from the car). It's good to have them hot anyway for the first startup. Reinstall the plugs, and _then_ it should start.

Check ecm for number 1228253. If it has this one in it you will have a cutting off problem. Gm replaced these with #16198264 The cam sensor magnet on the cam gear will deteriorate and give problems. This will require removal of the timing cover.

SOURCE: 96 chevy tahoe won't start?
Mine did this with a cap and rotor. I changed it six months prior, but ended up having a faulty cap from Jegs which caused it to backfire. I had crank, spark, fuel, but the cap was crossfiring and wouldn't run.
This cost me a new flexplate, two starters, still a cap and rotor just due to the backfires.

i had a similar problem and called the dealer during lunch hour. i talked to a mechanic, the distributor in these vehicles is plastic, and is prone to cracking.not just the cap but the body also, I have been taking the cap off and wiping the moisture out of the cap. or replacing the cap but the problem is I need a new distributor. just a cheep way to get rolling is cleaning the inside of the cap, especially when it is very damp or the outside temp changes alot during the day. good luck.

try to start the car, than the anti theift would shut the car off. you wait ten min with the key on, until you see the anti theift flash or disapear. than turn key to off position and try to start it. this will reprogram the computer.. Good luck.
you can also try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes
