First start with the basics check fuses relating to fuel and or injectors make sure there is voltage next look into your crank sensor usually if it fails the computer doesn't know you are trying to start the vehicle because the signal the sensor is supposed to give out to the computer is not there due to a faulty sensor once the computer senses the signal from the crank sensor then the computer will send a command to the injectors to start pulsating gas let me know how this turns out for you.

Check the Fuel Pump Relay. behind the battery next to the OVP Over Voltage Protection Relay. They do fail. Occasionally the engine will not start when hot. This becomes more frequent until you are left stranded. If you are comfortable with jumping two terminals you can jump terminals 7 & 8 test the relay. if the car starts your Fuel pump relay is bad.

There are fuelpump relays for electric fuelpumps. You can have a bad fuelpump with either a mechanical or electric pump. You can have a clogged filter.

You can try and register your vehicle for free. Then you can get wiring diagrams and fusebox diagrams for the electric relays. Then you can find out which system you have.

It certainly sounds like you are on the right track since you discovered its a fuel problem.

simple enough job to change but check the drive in the gearbox first in case the nylon gears have failed or the square drive ,but normally this sort of failure is due to a tight inner cable but check them anyway as you renew the cable

before you get a new ignition switch you might want to check the starter relay in the fuse box and make sure that it isn't sticking, then check the wiring of any recent modifiactions (if any) to make sure that none of the wires are running off of the alternator charge curcuit this will cause the engine to run itself.

I don't know much about Mercedes, but that is exactly what most other vehicles will do when the MAF(mass air flow sensor) is faulty. It's always a good idea to find one at an auto wrecker, and try it. Or the fuel filter clogged? Hope this helps.
