Question about Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz A Class Maisto 118 Red
Hi, I have an A-Class Mercedes, 2004 model. It is an automatic car. It has done only 30,000 miles. Few months ago, we replaced a gearbox. Couple of days ago car broke down again and a towing company noted the cause to be P0700. What does it mean? The car is completely immobile. Engine turns on but car does not move at all. I can't take it to any mechanic as it does not work. I don't want to spend too much money on it again. What could be the possible reason for this? If I can get an estimate of repair, that would be great. Your time will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If you take it to mercedes they will charge £3500 and will replace the gearbox, Alternatively you can change the shifter valve £25, new sump and filter as they have changed, fit a magnet inside the gearbox as the early A didnt have one. Fresh oil and see how you get on, the control unit for the gearbox sits inside the gearbox £1000 roughly for a new one but it has to come from mercedes in germany where it is coded to your chassis number, 2nd control units are not an option!!!!!!!

the electrical needs to be looked at as the wireharnesses on these models is very britle.
the wire cases shead off and leave the exposed wires to short out on each other in the harness.
start by looking under the hood and checking for this condition in any of the visable wire harnesses.
if you see any sign of wires sheading there casings do not touch anymore as the more the wires move around the worse they get.
my c280 had this problem and it was 2k to replace the bad harness.
benz did the work.
this is the only thing that will contribute to your complaint of multiple electrical fuses and bulbs burning out.

The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
A flashing check engine light is an indication of a severe misfire or problem that is likely to harm your engine. Immediate diagnosis and service is needed.
Some specific causes for the light to be on are:
Gas cap left off, not tightened, not installed correctly, or needs to be replaced
Engine misfire - error might clear itself after 3 complete warm-up cycles; not restarts, but warm-ups
At start up for a bulb check - Should not stay on
Problem in the emission system, including clogged exhaust or the catalytic converter not functioning properly
Dirty/clogged air filter
Dirty MAF sensor
