Question about 1992 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 500 Class
The ignition module was replaced and when I touched the crank sensor wire the ignition coil began to make a clicking noise, so I replaced the crank sensor. Now It takes several tries before it starts.

The electrics in the Mercedes are notoriously flaky. A failing alternator would cause a low voltage condition that would cause the battery to run down but would not likely damage any of the computer modules. Have you REPLACED the fuses that protect the various fuel and ignition modules? Not just visually inspected, but REPLACED them? When I ran my Mercedes 123 series cars, I replaced all the fuses on Day One, regardless of how good they looked. Bosch fuses are known to corrode and cause intermittent problems similar to yours. If a fuse is overheating or the contacts are not good, a few minutes of driving could cause a problem that imitates expensive module failure. It happened with my Mercedes and my Volvos that used Bosch fuses.

If you hear a slight hum in the gas tank when you first turn on the key for 2 seconds the pump is working. Have the fuel pressure checked by a mechanic, it should be about 60 psi. It's usually located just before the injectors. Also have each injector wire pulse checked (light test) to see if there is enough spark to them. Have the ICM Ignition Control Module unit located under the rotor checked for enough spark also. My Trans Am had the same problem, turned out to be a shorted out injector causing it not to fire. If you can get to the wires to the injectors, pull one at a time while cranking to see if it starts or not. If you find that one that's faulty and unplugged the engine will start. That would be one problem. Also have the cars CPU checked to make sure it is not faulty also.

I would check your injectors, as if they are leaking slightly, the residual fuel pressure can force some fuel into the manifold even with the car off, and it it can cause temporary flooding.
Please leave positive feedback if I have helped you

Testimonial: "Thanks for your advice. It is most helpful. I have at times smelled the gas fumes when driving as if there was some flooding of sorts. Thanks."
P0100 OBD-II Trouble Code
Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Malfunction
Basically this means that there's a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit.
You will likely not notice any serious driving problems, but there may be symptoms like a general decrease in power or sluggishness.
A code P0100 may mean one or more of the following:
* The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad.
* The MAF sensor may be faulty.
Use an OBD II Reader (or go tou your local parts store and they will for free) and reset the code and see if it comes back.
Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:
* Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring/harness is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
* Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness a few times to clear the contacts.
* Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information).
* Replace the MAF sensor.
