Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

I have a Mercedes 220 CDI Auto Elagance saloon.The man took my car for an MOT and returned it as passed. This morning I drove off and it appears to be stuck in 2nd gear as it won't change up. The selector switch won't go to the W setting nor will the gears change up when selecting them manually. What could the fault be? I have checked the cruise control the inhibitor is off.

First.the mot is a govenment safety check,it is not a mechanical/electrical fitness test.so it passed an mot.....
now the gearbox W is for winter setting,it allows the car to pull away in 2nd gear and change slightly higher,NOTHING ELSE.
the gearchange has nothing to do with cruise control..or vice versa...
if the car wont go into/allow you to change then either its the selector plate or the gearbox inhibitor at fault......could go anytime.

This is a costly item. To buy the radio is about 450 dollars and then to have it installed is another ?. That is all the dealer is going to do is put in another one.

Sounds to be a loose or corroded wire/s at either starter motor or at battery fusible links.
Also check the earth strap (Cable) between engine and bodywork.
Hope this helps, MMP
