starting problem

i have a 2006 s500 with approx 58k miles. recently i have incurred a problem that is intermittent. on occasion i am unable to start my car, and i can't get the shifter out of park. the key is turn to the start position but the engine/starter does not crank. this normally has been happening after i have driven the car and it is at operating temperature. after i wait approximately 20 to 30 minutes then the car will start. the battery and all electrical system appear to be ok. one repair shop told me it was the shifter assembly and i had it replaced, but the problem still exist. i have been told that on this 7 speed transmission there is an additional module located in the transmission that works in conjunction with the shifter assembly (2202673324) and it may be on hold from Mercedes Benz. any help would be appreciated.

My guess is it could be your crankshaft position sensor, those are common failures on our era of E-Class. I would find the W220 (what you have) forum in the sedans section. Just scroll down until you see it and ask the other owners. Good luck and welcome to BW.
