Check the ABS brake sensors in your wheels, if they are not functioning properly. It will trigger the computer to engage the ASC auto stability control light as the asc uses the brakes to assist in control. I will also engage the EML engine management light to slow the rev point to limp mode

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: LIMP MODE
to many reset of limp mode set hard no reset in star code system. needs flashed to clear codes and for new transmission. Transmission control module may have oil wicking to it making it send fault codes remove cloth tape and clean with spray cleaner. check turbo hoses, replace TURBO RESONATOR with after market TURBO RESONATOR . Turbo air leak trip limp mode's.

A little acrobatic exercise for you............
1/ Put the Key in the # 2 position .
2/ Hit the "MI" button on the dash twice .
3/ Put the Key in the # 0 position (key out position) within 10 seconds of hitting the MI Button .
4/ Press the MI Button and turn the key into the # 2 position at the same time. There will be a confirmation noise .
5/ Release, Smile...and be on your way, your all done. !
