Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had turned off my ml430 and when I cranked it back up it would not shift to drive. I replaced the brake light switch and now it will go to drive but will not show what gear it is in and when I put it in drive it will not change out or will not display what gear it is in could some one tell me why this is happening?

1 Answer

check your motor mounts by placing a floorjack with woodblock under the oil pan...rubber will go to hell and should be obvious~ https://www.google.com/#q=ml430+motor+mount
