    My CLS500 fails to start sometimes. The problem is only at times though, other times the car starts flawlessly. I don't know the cause of this problem and would like to get some help from you guys. Many thanks.

    You should try replacing the ignition relay. I had the same problem with another car of mine, got it checked from the dealership and they replaced the relay. Hadn't had an issue with starting again until May when I sold my car. :)

    I had the same problem on mine , i changed both batteries , the brake light switch and then the starter , out of sheer luck i found out when i disconnected the gear shifter module it would start every time , plug it back in and it wouldnt start .
    I think the module is losing its memory , as most of the time it will start , however sometimes it wont and i have found that if i move the shifer lever between drive and neutral it will start , i ended up taking the lock out levers out to be able to do this .
    Is the gear shifter module coded to the car .
