Hello, the shifter can bind up due to the linkage inside the console, it's a common problem if there was anything spilled into the shift console, anything containing sugar will cause problems like this. remove the shift plate that surrounds the shifter you should b able to just pop it off, spray the inside with a solution of detergent and warm water, moving the shifter back and forth, this should keep the shift interlock from sticking.

Hello drtonyg... This is an electronic shifter controler on the C230...Almost every time they fail the shifter assy. needs replaced as a whole unit....There have been some techs that have tried to clean and repair the shifter assembly and reuse it but most attempts fail..You can disconnect the shift linkage from the shifter assembly underneath the vehicle and then see if your shifter moves all the way(this would eliminate any shifter assembly failures)
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.
