Th is is a transmission problem. inside the transmission there are solenoids that operate in which gear it should move if the solenoid is stuck closed the trans won't shift. before taking it to a shop try using lucas additive for trans hopefully this is a cheap solution it runs about 10 dollars a pint which is more than enough. if it still won't shift than the only thing to do is have a shop replace it.

I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

Your first mistake was to listen to a parts person at Autozone and actually buy the part he or she suggested, THEY ARE NOT TRAINED TECHNICIANS! You need to take this either to the dealer or a local transmission repair shop. In Calif these parts stores can't do the testing and can't hand out advice on vehicle repair. There is a reason why a trained automotive tech makes $30.00+ per hour and they make maybe $10.00, it is called training.

3000gt transmission


Hi,
Look on a 3000GT forum (search on Google) to find out how to read the transmission codes. I bet they are stored in the transmission computer. This will tell you what needs fixed.

Also, does sound like the shifter may be out of adjustment. Maybe a cable is broken or loose.
