Hello, I have worked on Mercedes for the past 20+ years and I can't think of any way to do this easily. The shift lock is tied into your steering lock/ignition lock for safety and theft reasons.
I hope this helps.

Can anyone tell me what this is. It is on a 2006 Chevy impala. It has something to do with shifting the car. Ithink it makes the box around my gear indicator work. I.E. P R [N] D 1 2

P=park gear position (no gear selected)
R=reverse gear position
N=neutral gear position (no gear selected)
D=top gear
2=fixed highest gear (used for speed when climbing an average incline and to control speed on decent)
1=fixed lowest gear (used for climbing steep incline or descending slowly)
Note-: Never engage Reverse gear when traveling forwards and never put into Park when moving forward or backwards, also towing most autos should be done no more than 10mph, fast towing can damage the gearbox, also make sure gear is in Neutral when towing.

Hi if the gear is stuck on gear they are two option there. First one maybe your clutch kit give up. Or something wrong with your gearbox. If the car is not idling try to take that gear of first normarly it should come off. If not remove your gear box to find out if the problem is the clutch or your gearbox.

What does the c and s mean on the gear box of a mercedes c 230

The "C" is for comfort mode and the "S" is for sport mode. While in comfort mode the transmission will start off in second gear and switch gears at a lower rpm. In sport mode the transmission will start off in first gear and allow shifts at a higher rpm. The car will always be in one of these modes depending on which one you select.

It should shift into 4 high in any gear. 4 low you have to be in neutral. If the button doesnt push in, it could very well be the button.
