E200 Kompressor (2001) shifts up in in D but wont's shift down

got an E200 Kompressor (01)
when you pull away the car will change up 1 - 4 in D ok but when you slow down or come to a stop and accelerate again it stays in the lower gear (1st or 2nd)
you need to pull over, turn off the car and start it up again.
this process will repeat itself.
I let the car come to a slow crawl without pressing the brake from highway speeds to see if the process of pressing the brake was a function of this, it wasn't. the problem was still there.
If you are driving and pop it out of D into N and then back to D it'll mostly select the correct gear. It seems not to know what speed it is doing when it slows down. People told me it seemed to be crawl home gear setting but not sure.
Also, the triptronic gear changer (knocking the auto stick to the left or right to change gear) isn't working. The screen changes but the auto box doesn't pass any attention on it.
any help with be greatly appreciated.
