Transmission stuck in park... Help

Rate this topic

2001 Mercedes E-class. Dead battery today. Just used the car and there was a loud noise when I put it into reverse. It drove ok. Came out of store and now the transmission shifter will not allow me to get out of park. Any suggestions?

Thats the sound of a planetary gear shattering if I had to guess. And I only say that because...been there, done that. Not good.

not sure with the Mercedes but isn't there a safety switch that connects your brakes system to the transmission that if the switch goes you can not get out of park. Happened to my Ford Explorer 2 times :( F'n Fords

Yup - happened to my wife's sable last year. Problem was the stop lamp switch. Easy repair but of course happened when I was out of town feeshin'. She did some googlin and found some sort of key sequence to temporarily override.
