It can be towed as long as they lift it on the drive wheels. It cannot be towed on a ramp truck unless they remove the drive shaft first. Dragging your car even a few inches runs the risk of breaking the park mechanism and repair will require removal and complete disassembly of your transmission. Hire an old style tow truck that can lift your car to tow it and you should be okay.
If the car is situated in such a way as to prevent them from hooking up to the drive wheels then tell them when you call that you need a truck with "dolly wheels". These are wheeled ramps that your locked drive wheels can be placed on and the car moved. It may cost a little extra but not as much as fixing your transmission. Be there when they come to get it and make sure they do it right. Hope this helps.

Does the car start in Neutral? If it does then Park sensor switch is cactus.
Not sure of the fix but my S320 does this, sometimes starting OK in Park, sometimes not.

Mercedes S320 CD1 2001 model. It is an automatic


Hi

Get the fluid checked in the gearbox, it could be the slave cylinder on it's way out, or the clutch could simply be jammed. Also look around the gearbox for fluid leaks.

It is difficult to say but I think it's most likely just jammed.

Regards

I have the same problem on a s320 cdi, gearbox goes into limp mode and wont rev above or kickdown, at the 1st chance i get to stop i put into park or neutral gear turn off the engine and re-start and then everthing is fine, I read that if you put a new battery on it may solve the problem, it's something to do with the voltage dropping below 10.4 volts. Then it sends a message to e.c.u. that puts your gearbox into limp mode. Hope this will work for you. MERKY
