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,

I have a Suzuki Jimny automatic 2007. It has 3 buttons to select gear type. None of these are now working.


Start by looking at the fuse box... check all the fuses. Next possibility is a relay.

The Suzuki Jimny Transmission Control Module (TCM) is an electronic circuit component that controls gear shift, TCC lock-up and idle-up according to the signal from each sensor. It is a microcomputer consisting of an IC, transistor, diode, etc. It is installed behind glove box.

1. Ignition switch
2. Transmission range sensor
3. Input shaft speed sensor
4. Output shaft speed sensor (A/T VSS)
5. Shield wire
6. Vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
7. Transmission fluid temperature sensor
8. Shift solenoid-A (Shift solenoid No.1)
9. Shift solenoid-B (Shift solenoid No.2)
10. Shift solenoid-C (Shift solenoid No.3)
11. Shift solenoid-D (Shift solenoid No.4) 12. TCC solenoid (Lock-up solenoid)
13. "O/D" cut switch
14. "O/D OFF" lamp
15. Monitor connector No.2
16. DLC
17. To ECM
18. To A/C
19. To brake lamp switch
20. To main relay
21. Terminal arrangement of TCM coupler

E280 2005 Gear box issue


On some European cars there is just one shaft from the gear shift leaver that operates the transmission. First make sure all the bushings are good unlike American cars European cars are not forgiving for loose or worn bushings. On the cars with cables there are two cables on for going forward and backward one for going side to side; not the gear position how they move the Mechanisms Make sure the bushings are not loose or worn and check cables for breakage. Make sure to check under the rubber boot usually by removing the center cover between the two seats if the cable or mechanism has broken it usually near the shift inside the car. Usually the pressure for going side to side is equivalent for going back to back there should also be a click feeling as you move the rods in the transmission by moving the stick both sideways and front to back. If it is not the cables or the outside mechanisms it usually is one of keys usually a screw in the detent mechanism in the transmission which means the transmission has to come out. Unfortunately they stopped making that serviceable in the 1970's. A 1950's Chevy for example has that mechanism on the side of the transmission instead of on top.

Renault trafic stuck in second gear


There is one of 2 problems that will give this indication. The first is the gear lever end in the shift rail has moved out of the slot and is behind the slot and not moving it . This can be checked by removing the lever mount from the top of the box and physically moving the shift rail back into the neutral position then replacing the gear lever back into the selector gate and moving the rail again.. The second possible fault is that the selector fork has come loose on the rail and is not moving the gear (just sliding on the rail) If that is the case the box will have to come out unless you can see the selector fork and the lock screws from the top of the box when the lever mount is removed.. If you can move the selector rod forward and tightening up the lock screw then pulling it back to neutral. Repeat until the fork is back in neutral position and lock it up. Most lock screws have a hole and there is wire tied around the shaft to prevent the screw coming loose. If the box has been reconditioned at some time then it is possible that the person doing the job neglected the wire bit.

I can shift into drive but it won't engage


sounds like a broken shift cable. (the connection between the shifter and the gearbox) common symptoms are the shifter move easier than normal.and does not move to any gears (not even park or neutral).

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...


A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

1991 Caprice No reverse. Moves in neutral. All forward gears OK.


What engine? Rear wheel drive ?Sounds like shift linkage or cable out of adjustment slightly. Have a look at where cable or rod attaches to transmission for adjustment. If not sure of what your looking for get back to me with info.
