More than likely you have faulty brake switch thats not allowing the gear shift solenoid to release. This is fairly common on the Benz.
Look for a circular spring loaded cap to the rear of the shifter indicator on the consol and if its there use a ball point pen to push IN and that should release the Park Lock...
This will get you by until you can have repairs made.
Check the Owner's Manual under Practical Advice on how to release the gear lever from PARK for more info.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take time to rate me a fixya.

2000 mercedes benz ml 430 gear is locked in park


The 2000 Mercedes models all utilize a Shift Interlock, which will only allow the vehicle to be shifted out of Park while the brake is applied. The way this works is that a lock pin holds the shift lever in the Park position until a solenoid is powered by the brake light circuit, pulling the lock pin away from the shift linkage. The wire to the solenoid may come loose, or the brake light switch may fail. If someone tried to remove the vehicle from Park without applying the brake, the end of the lock pin may have become jammed. Try two things: 1) Start the vehicle, put your foot on the brake, and attempt to move the shift lever from Park to Reverse. 2) If you cannot remove the vehicle from Park, are the brake lights coming on? If not, a) replace the 15A fuse for the brake light circuit, and b) try Step 1 again. 3) If you cannot remove the vehicle from Park and the brake lights are coming on normally, locate the interlock solenoid at the shift lever and make sure it is properly connected. When you put your foot on the brake, the solenoid should retract. If it does not, check for 12V at the solenoid when you put your foot on the brake. If you have voltage, replace the solenoid. If you do not have voltage, you have a broken wire between the brake light switch and the solenoid. If the solenoid retracts but you still cannot remove the vehicle from Park, your shift linkage may have become bent at the transmission linkage. Hope that's helpful! :)

I have an ml320 1999 and the brake sensor message wont come off, i have changed the front & rear brake pads still the problem is unresolved. during the alarm even the gear wont change Can you help?


When you changed brakes did you replace the sensors? Also check to make sure sensor cable is not cut or shorting out. (Had same problem on 300E, put wheel back on and cut new sensor wire)
I'm not aware of brake sensors having effect on gear shift unless it's a safety feature on your model.

My 2000 ml320 mercedes will not shift from packing to a drive and the ETS light came on the dash board. what can i do olimac000@yahoo.co


there should be a small plastic piece that is below the D in the shifter column. this piece is hinged. a small screwdriver or pen works to push down in and unlock the shifter. After putting back in park the piece will return to original position. recommend having shift linkage looked at for adjustment at tranny shop. ETS light known to come on after 80 to 100k miles. still could have diagnostic done, shop can take light off if all clear.

The gear is stuck in park


No you do NOT need a new transmission.
This model Mercedes uses an electronic solenoid in the shift housing, to take the linkage out of park.
There is a small plastic part, activated by a solenoid that pushes a release, allowing the shifter to come out of park. Most of the parts in the box were metal. This particular part is plastic and very frail.
It is not an easy job, but any mechanic can do it.

Gear shift stuck in neutral when moving to park


1st check your shifter linkage-does the indication coincide with your gear recognition display in instrument cluster? most liley if it is not the linkage the gear recognition swith inside your shift box is defective-usually they get soda or coffee spelled on them and malfution. I would recomend having you car scanned for codes.
