Stuck in First Gear
Recently purchased a 2000 ML430 and just this week a problem occured.
The transmission will not change out of 1st gear. It will not even let you change maually.
The check engine light was on when purchased and I pulled the codes and requires 2 -O2 sensors. As well the fuel guage does not work.
Now I have read that somewhere that the transmission has a "safety" mode. Could this have been engaged due to the problems with the 2 sensors and fuel guage problem??
I tried disconnecting the battery for an hour and nothing.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
