There is a wire harness going to the transmission , you may want to check connection at the transmission itself. Right front corner of the trany , just above a/t flud pan , restricted view because of heat shield. But what you looking for is round electrical plug(about 2in diameter) , if you see any oil or wetness on that plug , you need to change plug adapter. Part is about $10 from dealer.Part # A 203 540 02 53.Mercedes call it a pilot bushing.There are two robber o-rings on it, wich getting old and start leaking oil inside electrical connector.Sometimes it may ruin a/t control module TCM.
Hope that may help.

How do I used the automatic gearbox?


p is for park,always put into this mode when starting up or your finished with the car.
n is for nuetral,used for warming up on very cold mornings.do not leave car unnattended EVER.
d is for drive.the car will change gear itself for a given road/engine speed(for economy use only the first1/3rd of the gas pedal travel)
3 is for accending/descending a very steep hill where
changeing from 4 to 3/3 to 4 constantly up/down would overheat the gearbox, reducing efficiency.
2 and 1 are for pulling away in snow and mud when a wheelspin would not be beneficial.
stick shift is fun but auto is more comfortable....if used considerately..
