It's not the switch. It is working, sending power to the starter when starting, to the ignition, the computer, and the dash when running and in the on position.
You will have to scan the computer for trouble codes for the shifting problem, and the warning lights staying on.

Could be a problem with the clutch pedal switch. I'd have a look under the dash first to make sure no wires have been knocked of the pedal switch. If there's no sound, not even a clunking sound it may be the solenoid. I'd first want to eliminate the pedal wiring. Remove the small wire on the starter (most likely a spade type terminal) and using a piece of insulaated wire attach it to the starter where you removed the spade. Flick the other end of the wire on the positive of the battery. If the starter operates your looking at the pedal switch/ relay fault. If not its the starter. MAKE SURE CAR IS IN NEUTRAL BEFORE TRYING THIS. Ignition switched off. That way it will crank but not start.
Cheers John

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

SOURCE: i have a MB C230 Sport 2007. My check engine light

Place your car in park, wait at least 5 minutes then place your foot on the break, put your car in D. Now, take your gear shift and push it to the left for D- direction, you should see the number 1 show on your display console, then push the gear shift to the right, D+ direction, you will see the numbers go from 2 to 6 and then D. Turn the vehicle off and wait about 10/15 minutes and the light will hopefully go out, you will leave Limp Home Mode, and your car will drive properly and you will feel the gears shifting gently without the feel of the transmission slipping or the up or down-shift sounding out of whack. Good Luck.

My dashboard lights wont turn off even when the key is turned off on my 99 intrepid help ty


If you are mechanically inclined, begin by removing head light switch and disconnect the harness. This should turn lights off, is it does, you might have a bad switch or a shorted/grounded wire from switch to dashboard.

Dash lights quit working


When the dashboard lights in your vehicle malfunction or cease to operate, the resulting effects can range from being a mere annoyance to posing a safety hazard. Locating the problem and finding a remedy is essential. To fix dashboard lights that won't light, follow these suggestions

Evaluate the problem methodically. Begin the process by trying the simplest of solutions first. Most vehicles have a dashboard lights control switch that will dim the dashboard lights, as well as turn them off. Check the control switch, which should be located on the console near the steering column, make sure its in the correct position to have the lights on.

Check the dashboard light fuse. A blown fuse can disable the vehicle's dashboard light. The fuse box may be under the hood, or on the floor, near the brake pedal, or there may be 2 fuse boxes in both places. Refer to the diagram on the fuse box cover to locate the correct fuse. Replace the dashboard light fuse if necessary.

If all of the above don't fix it, then replace your light switch.

Tail lights won't come on. All other lights work, dashboard switch replaced.


I recommend checking your dimmer switch. A bad switch will cause tail lights not to work. As long as bulbs are good and headlight switch is working and wires are securely in place, then the dimmer switch or fuse is bad.
