The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.




For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

SOURCE: where are the fuse boxes located ofr my 2002

A 2002 S500 actually has 3 differant fuse boxes.
2 of them are located under the engine hood, they are both against the firewall in the back corners of the engine compartment. The fuse box on the drivers side of the firewall has most of the common fuses in it.
The last one is located under the rear seat. There is a access panel below the passengers side rear seat, just unclip the plastic panel from the top.
Fuse chart can be found in the rear with the spare tire tools.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

SOURCE: while in park 1988 mercedez benz 190e idles rough and sometimes

This is an interesting part, and I spent quite some time to fix the problem. I list it here those steps in the order could fix the problem ranging from least expensive to most expensive steps. It just happened to me the last one really eliminated the problem. 1- Make sure it gets turned up first. 2- Adjust cables to increase idle. There are two cables. You remove the air filter to see them clearly. a- one for the gas, the other for transmission. b- clean the area well so you can see a micro switch. This switch called cut off switch. c- whatever adjustment you make, the level of the switch has to press on the switch to maintain the idle. If you see it off, you can bend the metal part to keep it in place 3- Take off the Fuel distributor to clean the throttle below it. 4- Replace all the injectors. These are not Electronic Fuel Injectors so you don't have to deal with Injector module. 5- Replace the fuel distributors. Good luck.

SOURCE: My 2000 Mercedes Benz S500 is dead- electronic key does not

It's not that unusual for a battery to fail that soon, and the "no lights, no nothing" says that it's the battery again. Your best bet at this point is to pull the battery and take it to the point of purchase for testing. They should either replace it under warranty or charge it for you. After you replace the battery you should have the charging/electrical system checked for possible shorts or power drains.

How do you fix a mercedes benz s 500 gear shift that is stuck in park?


mbmaster is right, you should also check your brake lights. If they aren't working the shifter won't release. Could be a bad brake pedal switch or blown fuse. The shifters can be fixed when they brake. Tough do it yourself job, but there are outfits out there that you can ship your shifter to and they can fix it.

Gear shift stuck in park


there is a u shaped clip that holds handle on stem, pull that and then pull handle off and then push down on the white stick that is in center of shifter and see if it can move out of park then, also make sure your foot is on brake ! if that that does'nt work then there is a little solenoid down by shifter that has to move when you put foot on brake so's that it will let you shift it (safety device) it may be bad or bad connection.

Shifter go stuck in park, 2001 s500


YOU WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE STOP LAMP SWITCH OR THE COMPLETE GEAR SHIFT
ASSEMBLY.MOST LIKELY THE SHIFT ASSEMBLY.YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET IT OUT OF PARK BY STRIKING DOWN ON THE SHIFT KNOB AND PULLING TOWARD REVERSE AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE IGNITION TURNED ON.IF THIS WORKS,PULL BACK TO NEUTRAL AND START ENGINE.THEN YOU CAN DRIVE IT TO REPAIR FACILITY INSTEAD OF PAYING A TOW BILL.IF THIS WORKS CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT NOW.IT WON'T CONTINUE.

I have a mercedes S500 stuck in P position. How can I manually put it to N position to tow it?


You don`t want to tow the vehicle on the drive wheels at all. You will damage you transmission. But if it is a shifter problem you can unhook the linkage from the transmission and move the shift lever with your hand. If it is a transmission problem, you cant do it without disassembling the transmission.

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.
