Question about 1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Open Question

I've got a 1994 mercedes c220 that has problems shifting from 2nd to 3rd when I first start the car. After a five or ten minutes, it'll shift fine. When the car is first started, it will only shift from 2nd to 3rd at around 3500 rpms. Sometimes, it won't even shift and will just act like I threw it in neutral and hit the accelerator. The transmission has been rebuilt 10,000 miles ago. What else should be checked?

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

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

SOURCE: how to reset airbag for mercedes benz c220 1994

This can not be reset by conventional methods. This must be done through a scan tool. Usually only the dealer scan tool will communicate with the SRS module. If the SRS light is on you have other issues and they must be remedied before the light will go out. There is no way of knowing what the issue is without running codes with the scan tool.

Why does my 1974 international 100 truck not shift from 2nd to 3rd


If it is an automatic trans, chances are the problem is inside the transmission. Probably the 3rd gear clutch pack.

Could be water that touched one of your electronics that makes your transmission having problems try to dry the Transmission electronic connectors with low air pressure and see whats happens.Good luck

Transmision starts out in 1st shifts to 2nd then third but will not shift into overdrive , but once it reaches 3rd gear ,it stays there when you come to a stop . after that it will only shift manually...


Sounds like your transmission is in limp mode. This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

The other from what you described, trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Thank you for using fixya and have your Safari scanned for the DTC codes that would indicate what issues your transmission is having to put you in to limp mode.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1993 Chevy Blazer 1500


Sounds like you have a bad shift solenoid. Not sure if the Chevys are a solenoid pack, or seperate, but it will need to be replaced.

Transmission won't shift!


Does it just not shift up to 3rd or when it shifts to 3rd it is just like neutral?
