If you do not get a response here, post this on the R129 forum. I did a search and could find anything on that forum similar to your problem. But someone could still know the solution to your problem. I know with the w163, if you spill liquid on the shifter you can have the problem you describe. Also read about a plastic part in the shifter box that can break and the neutral safety switch in certain models. Like I said, if you do not get the answer in the General Forum, try the R129 forum. You can also do a search like I did. Maybe you will find the answer there.
