Unhappy 1997 e420 nightmare

Been having a lot of problems with my 1997 e420 lately. Today, the O2 sensor went bad, but not before developing a gas leak in back passenger area, 1/2 hour later the whole car started to jerk and buck with loss of power and finally shut down. The dtc engine codes came up with the obvious O2 code, but then more manufacturer specific codes came up.

P1747 Electronic Gear Selector Module: Defective Interaction of CAN
with control unit A1(instrument cluster)

P0560 System Voltage Malfunction (very detailed there)

P1580 Cruise Move Circuit Low Voltage

Looks like transmission fluid dripped on the flatbed on the way home, so I'm guessing it's related to the "electronic gear selector module" somehow. Any ideas on where to start would be greatly appreciated.
