It sounds like your linkage is binding. Hold the brake down and shift between drive and reverse a few times and then into park. I had the same problem with my 2002 300m. It went away after working the shifter a number of times. DO NOT FORCE IT.

The interior lights are controlled by a module that gets its information from the sensors in the car door and the switch on the dash that is associated with the dash lights. There is an intermittent short in one of the doors or the module.
Sorry it has to be so vague, but there is not way to know where with out taking some things apart. An intermittent electrical short that can not be duplicated on demand is the hardest thing to diagnose. This is one that needs to go to someone who specializes in electrical diagnosis.
Hope this helps

It is all about troubleshooting. Possible causes are a dead battery. Did someone try to steal it and cut the wrong wires underneath?
The starter solenoid could be bad.
If the headlights stay bright when you try to start the car then it is not the battery. if you hear clicking and the headlights are very dim then it is likely to be the battery. If you have full battery with good cable connections and you get very active clicking but no starts then the solenoid on the starter has burned contacts. if battery is good but no clicking when trying to start then the problem is in the key area or alarm system.
All the areas mentioned above are place to start and troubleshooting steps.

Check the battery voltage of your car. You should have met 12.7v if I am not mistaken but in your case you may have to check your alternator as well. You should get 13v to 14v when the engine is running. The lights you have mentioned would turn on at the same time if voltage drops at low levels. Other than that inspect the sensors at the wheel hubs. If you have a voltmeter they should give out signals when wheels rotate. If not they may be faulty. Sensors may have also been disconnected at the bottom of your seat. Although it is rare that both may malfunction at the same time unless there are wiring issues. You may have to inspect for bad wiring such as exposed conductor, loose wires or terminals which may need cleaning.
