Post Car wont stat can not move gear lever

Hi my Mercedes E-Class,E240,V6,W210 has been parked up since last Sunday when i went to start it up after 6days it started up o.k 1st time then i let it warm up when i try to change the gear to D it would not go down at all. So i switch off the ignition and restarted the car but now it wont start up again so i left it alone after i got back from work i started pressing hard on the barke pedal and got the gear lever to come out of P got it into N and the car started moved it to D and done a test drive.
When i got back i could not move into R so i pressed a flat screw driver in the override bit and move from D to R back to park and switch off car.
Next day i changed the brake light switch same problem sametimes starts up sometimes not.So when i got it started i took it to a garage and switch it off went to see him when he came to the car it would do the samething so i just tryed pushing the brake pedal hard down and move the gear lever so i got it to start then i switched off the car tryed to start up again this time it would not start up again at all.
Brake switch has been replaced so has the starter moto could it be gearshift seclector module and if yes can they not be fixed in any way?
Please help
