Asked by Apr 28, 2014 at 10:48 PM about the 2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK 320

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The auto trans on our 2002 SLK320 shifts hard while putting it in to drive while not
moving. When I attempt to place it back in to park, the shift arm will not go past neutral. I
turn the key off and it will then allow me to go in to the parked position. Whats up? Any
suggestions or answers?

Mark, It was not clutches in the tranny. What it was is, there is a sensor switch under the center console where the shifter arm is located. If you spilled anything on or around it, or if you just cleaned the car and used any cleaner, chances are, you have gotten it damp and it is now not working properly. Either give it time to dry or pull the console wood cover off and locate the sensor to either clean it or replace it. If you disconnected the battery, you will need to turn the steering wheel full lock in both directions to reset your other systems as well. You can read about this in your owners handbook. Best of luck, Glenn
