The fuel level is ok.But fuel pressure.It can be low.If the fuel pressure is low then it will not start frequently as required.Get the fuel pressure checked.If the pressure is low then this problem is related to faulty fuel pump or fuel filter.
as you spray fuel the fuel directly gets to the fuel rail and car starts,but when the aerosol is not sprayed then the fuel is not passing to the fuel rail and car is not starting.After few tries the fuel gets to fuel rail/fuel line and car starts.So check the fuel pressure,also get the fuel line and fuel rail checked.-----------Also see if spark plugs are wet or moisture collected or spark plugs worn out Then its faulty spark plug causing this problem.------------
This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

You must go to the dealer workshop for replace shock in your car, after replaced shock in your car must need to re calibrate the airmatic suspension through Mercedes diagnostic CPU otherwise It won't be working properly,

The suspension has a leak somewhere and/or the airmatic compressor has stopped working properly. You need either the Mercedes star diagnosis system (SDS) in order to access the suspension control module to tell it to raise the vehilce or you can try to trick it by jacking up the car so it thinks it's sitting at the correct ride height. But as long as the display reads a warning it won''t allow the airmatic compressor to run.

There should be a fuse chart in the trunk of the vehicle where the tools are. Lift up the carpet in the trunk to expose the tools. It should be all folded up and stuffed in with the tool to remove the lug bolts. The chart will show the fuse and fuse box locations.

What do you mean by "the car is shaking"? Are you refering to when the engine is running at idle(or standing in gear) or while driving down the road? Also, what year and model is this car?

The fuel pump and filter is located on the left side of the vehicle, rear, just in front of the left rear wheel. If there is no fuel getting to the CIS system, it is more likely that the pump is in trouble. Pressure is very critical in these systems. Let me know what else you need. I know these cars quite well.

at rear of the car near the fuel tank under the car.

Look under your hood, you will find contact points for jump starting. If you have a battery charger, you can connect it to those jumper points, and that will give you enough juice to operate the trunk lock.

This is one of the feature called easy access. You can go to the setting from menu at the buttons on your steerling wheel to turn it off then it will stay down. It is under convennient set up, go to steering column and select off.

It sounds like the cluster lost it's version coding and went to default mode. I would recommend having the cluster scanned for codes and version coded.
