hi i have a 1999 clk320 i was having a probelem losing the first stages of the throtle .. i have replaced the throtle body and the potesiometer . now when you turn the key it starts then it dies instantly . had it on computer no falts show

Hi, try initializing the throttle body using this procedure. Turn the key on to the second click but do not start the car. Leave the key on for 3 minutes then start the car and see if it will idle.

Let me know if it works.
