03 Cl500 Stuck in Park!
I have the same problem also! I still have the problem but found a system to make it happen less.
What I do is when I park....
- stop the car and put it in neutral
- press the emergency break
- put in park
when I start the car
-right when I turn the key to start the car I immediatley (as the car is still revving up from the start) press the brakes and move the shifter in neutrual
-then after the car is warmed up and I release the ermergency break and go into drive.
It could be so many issues, I recently had my EIS replaced and thats when I noticed this problem, Any way it could be related??
I know it could also be that brake signal or faulty shifter, in my case I think some wiring was done incorrectly when I had my EIS replaced.
I think it shifts out of park immediately while starting bc that's when the car is sending most signals to the car to get ready, but once it idles then you can be in trouble.
