Question about Cars & Trucks
The mechanic told me that it is a shifter module but I don't know where it is to change it. The car is a 1999 Mercedes E300. The trans doesn't always shift from 1st to 2nd. I have to play with the shifter to get it to shift properly and that doesn't always work.

This is not that unusual for Mercedes cars of these years.
Try having the transmission oil filter replaced,and fresh fluid put in.
This may help some, but this may be something which comes with wear and tear.
Unless of course you are willing to spend a lot of money to replace the transmission.

If this MB is built like others I have known, this is going to be a chore.
Some models required the removal of the dashboard to replacement the wiper motor.
I recall hearing from a frustrated owner (former brother-in-law) that the dealer-estimated labor time was 5 hours.
I wanted to refer you to Chilton or Haynes for an aftermarket manual but surprisingly, neither of them offer one covering your 1990 year.

Hello, The adjust of your t/v cable, not kickdown cable, and the operation of the vacuum controller at the rear of injection pump, and the modulator, is critical for this car to get a good shift.
Put you cable back on, adjust it so that when you have wide open throttle, the cable does not have any slack. Check the black vacuum line by the oil filter housing that goes to the modulator to see if it has vacuum. It should have about 10-15" vacuum and as you increase engine speed it should drop. If you get close to this, the trans should shift ok. If you cannot get vacuum at the modulator line, you need to ck vacuum supply, valve at rear of injection pump, hose routing, etc.
If the B2 piston failed, it would be difficult to move car or slip badly. Also, take into mind that at the bottom of your accelerator pedal stroke is a kickdown switch.
If you accomplish what I instructed, you will probably get a decent shift.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.

Its probably not a fuse issue as that would affect both sides.
when you replace a blub especially the brake lights it is possible to deform that nice flat panel of metalic strips and if you look carefully it sometimes breaks the plastic pins on which it sits, this causes poor connection to the functional bulb, the soloution is easy, get a small piece of card and fold it over till its about 2-3 mm thick then wedge it behind the panel of strips (top outside corner for brake light) and hey presto the light should work again, top tip use an umbrella and the electric seat to make sure the brake pedal is deppressed to check if alone.
