My 2002 C200K has also gone into safe mode.
It has been in a repair shop for more than 2 months now, and the techs say the transmission is cavitating.
The car has 108 000 km on the clock.
At first the techs said that water had entered the transmisison, as there was rust and some sticky goo in the transmission, and the plates had burnt.
They have replaced the valve body, torque converter, primary pump, oil cooler, ATF fluid and control unit a number of times.
Every time I get the car back, it works for about 20-30 kilometres, and then goes back into safe mode.
Can anyone please help as to why the transmission keeps cavitating..
