This car is a dual clutch right? I don't think it had anything to do with the jump start, unfortunately it sounds like it might be a manufacturing problem. This is uncommon but the ecu might have a problem telling the gears to change.

Also if the car has a different modes (comfort, sport or whatever) try and shift it a different mode and see if there is any change. (is this a new s class; that's to bad to see this happen on a car that expensive).
