SOURCE: I cannot shift from park on my 2000 S500 Mercedes

you need to have your car scanned for codes. in the mean time take a flat screwdriver and insert it in the slot on the shifter console and release the shift lock. this should allow you to manually shift the vehicle. Your owners manual should tell you about this feature.

The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are not durable and will definitely not last the life of the car. The E class is a nice car but the mechanical build quality is not of a high standard (it's just complex and expensive).

If the vehicle has clocked around 70000 miles or more you can expect auto transmission problems like you are experiencing now. The symptoms you describe are an indication that the transmission is on its way to total failure. The only fix is to fit a rebuilt transmission which will be very expensive.
( Take the vehicle to a transmission specialist that handles Mercedes auto transmissions and I am sure you will receive the same advice after a road test on the car is carried out).

I'm afraid that If you retain the car you can expect quite a few expensive maintenance and repair costs as the miles clock up.

SOURCE: 2001 Mercedes S500 Dead Battery,

Hi, if you can open the hood, use jumper cables to open the trunk. Connect the negative cable to chassis ground or even the engine. Connect the positive cable to either the big nut on the starter solenoid, the fuse box, or the big charge wire nut on the back of the alternator.

I have a 99 ford ranger 5 speed and my gear shift freely moves without pushing the clutch. What will cause that to happen


If the gear shift moves freely and the transmission is turning, I would say the shift lever is not connected to anything, or something inside the trans is broke.
If the trans is not turning, something happened to the clutch.

I HAVE A S500 THAT GET STUCK IN 1ST GEAR SUM TIME BUT WHEN I CUT THE CAR OFF AN RESTART IT THE CAR SHIFTS FINE


check that the clutch is properly disengaging when you go to change gears . If there is any drag at all on the input shaft then 1st gear will try to stay engaged because of the load on the gear teeth.

Steering wheel is 'locked' - move it left or right while trying the key. Or make sure the gear selector is fully in Park, if an Automatic.
