Check under the drivers pedals for a plastic switch around the brake pedal. This operates the brake lights. It may be out of adjustment or broken. There should be a gearshift lockout to require you to step on the brake pedal to shift out of park. There should be a switch either under the hood or dash for the shift. Check with an autoparts place and they can show you the two switches so you know what you are looking for.

I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

99 E250 when motor is running van wont shift out of park when motor is off . when ignition is on and motor not running it will shift just fine


the shift interlock is not releasing. You are doing emergency release procedure with engine off and key in off position.
Likely you don't have brake lights either. When you step on the brake with the key ON, it releases the shift lock solenoid (and turns on the brake lights).
Check to be sure the brake light switch on the pedal arm has the wire going to it and you can hear it click on and off.Check the fuse for the brake lights too.

2003 Mountaineeer wont shift into Park


There is a shift interlock mechanism that only alows the key to come out in park. It is the same mechanism that will not let you put it into gear unless you put your foot on the brake. You cannot safely bypass it.

2002 VW TDI Glowplug light blinking


They might be two unrelated problems. I have a 2001 and have had two failures of the glowplug harness. The last time I had a constant light.

As far as the brakes go, the rear brakes are used for motion control. So if you drive it pretty hard the computer will be applying the brakes to keep traction or stability. I have had the same sensation of a soft break pedal from time to time but no real problem has poped up. I did have a master cylinder go way back when I first got the car in 2003. Have not had to replace that part again.
