transmission wont shift out of drive. shifter moves but wont shift
i pulled up to a drive through at a cvs pharmacy. and when i put the car in
park. it stayed in drive. so park rev nut and drive are all in drive. Has anyone
had this problem and know what it needs? ty
i drove the car home and shut it off. now it wont start and also wont shift out of park even with my foot on the brake.
Check the metal linkage from the shifter assembly to the transmission from under the vehicle. the linkage is held by a single rubber grommet from both ends and usually break over the years from wear and tear! that is your first step
Definitely a linkage issue. Have someone remove the steering column to check that the shift cable hasn't come loose from the shifter and then, look underneath the driver's side dash, before going underneath the car.
ill look at the linkage. its a auto on the floor. ty
When you step on the brake pedal you should feel a clicking on the shifter when you have your hand the shifter. this means it is releasing the safety cable in order to get the gear out of park. if this happens then check the stop lamp switch which is located behind the brake pedal, the switch sends electronical message to release the cable via EIS ( electrical ignition switch) which is where your key is inserted to. If new stop lamp switch does not fix it, you must have a Certified Mercedes Benz technician diagnose the problem, possible causes are either the shifter assembly or the EIS
Its best to start looking at the linkage first. I'm a master certified Mercedes technician, and that is where I will start first
ty raghiari . i will check into that. it was great then just wouldnt shift out of drive. so linkage will be the first thing i check. ty
