Question about Mercedes S-class S500
Was going through car wash computer started displaying that the car was going in security mode
You are putting your foot on the brake before you try to move the shift lever, right?
Most cars have a locking device that prevents the shifter from moving unless the motor is running (key inserted into the wheel lock and on) and the brake petal is depressed.

No you do NOT need a new transmission.
This model Mercedes uses an electronic solenoid in the shift housing, to take the linkage out of park.
There is a small plastic part, activated by a solenoid that pushes a release, allowing the shifter to come out of park. Most of the parts in the box were metal. This particular part is plastic and very frail.
It is not an easy job, but any mechanic can do it.

It's not that unusual for a battery to fail that soon, and the "no lights, no nothing" says that it's the battery again. Your best bet at this point is to pull the battery and take it to the point of purchase for testing. They should either replace it under warranty or charge it for you. After you replace the battery you should have the charging/electrical system checked for possible shorts or power drains.

A 2002 S500 actually has 3 differant fuse boxes.
2 of them are located under the engine hood, they are both against the firewall in the back corners of the engine compartment. The fuse box on the drivers side of the firewall has most of the common fuses in it.
The last one is located under the rear seat. There is a access panel below the passengers side rear seat, just unclip the plastic panel from the top.
Fuse chart can be found in the rear with the spare tire tools.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
