I had a '71 dodge with three-on-the-tree that experienced binding and the only way to fix it is to replace worn parts. as for the lights, find out which connetor supplies power. perhaps it is faulty or loose. also, there may be a separate fuse located on or near the instument cluster specifically for that application.

when you say shift manually are you getting under truck and shifting it into reverse from trans ? if so check shift cable or gear solicitor for the prob.

Either your vacuum modulator is bad or your band inside the tranny is bad. Check for plugged catalytic convertor also. May need to have the tranny rebuilt. Make sure you have good vacuum to the trans vacuum modulator.

Probably shift interlock on the steering column or the parking pawl in the trans could be stuck. I've seen the shift cable housing break on these, too. You will have to crawl under the truck to see if the cable is broken between the trans and floor where it comes through.

Whilst driving, my E280 gear box moved into neutral for about a second or two, and it shifted into the next gear with a strong sudden ****.


seems like faulty transmission, the reason is when you drive the car gears are up shift form 1 to 2 , 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, like that it should be 7 speed auto trans mission in your car, if you mention when which gear up shift the problem occurred I can give more information about what's the fault in transmission, so according to your details it's like two gears are engage together, when two gears are engage same time the transmission control unit understand it's something getting wrong in the transmission according to actual value of gear ratio, then trans mission change the gear to neutral for a second and after that it give the one lower gear than the gear which was stuck and drive fine, this thing might not happen all the time but is the problem verse it can happen all the time, the solution is you must get your car to the Mercedes dealer workshop then they can find what's the wrong inside the transmission before remove it, they have advance diagnose tool for it, then they will repair your transmission, this is the cheapest way, if some one repair your transmission without right understanding regarding what's the exactly fault you will be stuck, may have to be remove again and again,

Shifter won't shift gears


Have someone look @ linkage on trans. while someone moves shift lever thru the gears. If lever @ trans doesn't move then its in the linkage between the column and trans. (possible clip or pin broken @ linkage jounts). If lever @ trans moves then its a trans. internal prob.

Shifting gears in a 69 Ford F150 column was moved to floor


Sounds like you got a mistry shifter. It might just be out of ajustment, or just plane wore out. If its an old shifter you would be money a head to buy a new one and put it in. Summit racing sells them, Heck i'am not real sure but you might be able to get one at auto zone, or napa, or advance auto. There just a phone call a way. They might even sell kits to repaire yours.

Auto Transmission


Try shifting the trans manually through the gears and see what happens,doesnt cost anything so,possibility valves are sticking in the valvebody after sitting so long,and manually shifting the car will force some of them to stroke in their bores unless REALLY stuck.Could also be shift solenoids.Scan for diagnostic trouble codes.A bad solenoid will have set a trouble code.Just FYI,1991 was the first year Ford went to all electronic trans,i had a 91 Sable.
