Try checking the brake light sending unit. Are your brake lights even working. Many newer vehincles will not shift out of park unless the brake pedal is depressed. However, a faulty sendind unit located on the pedal itself can keep you from moving anywhere. Just check to see if your brake lights are working to know if the sending unit is working.

mercedes did nothing wrong your transmission is probably blown up. no way they could put in the wrong parts they wouldn't fit. how many miles are on your trans now? did you ever do a transmission service on the transmission that mercedes says is lifetime fluid? dont do back to the dealer find an independant shop that specializes in mercedes, like the one i work for. the dealer doesnt care about its clients. Us independants honestly do care

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.

just had the same problem today...there is a small square false door just below the D on the shift plate...the tow guy put a pen into that door and i was able to shift it out of park. now the car won't shift gears as i drive because the car is in 'safe mode'. disconnect the battery to correct. the shifting issue is still unsolved but it appears to be an electrical issue in the transmission but NOT the actual transmission. hope this helps
