1999 CLK430 - Where to begin?

I just bought a '99 CLK430 that needs a little work. It had some minor passenger corner damage (needs a fender, wheel/tire) before it's street worthy. I can take care of that no problem, but my concerns are the transmission and SRS light.

I just now drove it home, taking it easy since the wheel has a chunk out of it, but it didn't seem to shift up past 2nd or 3rd. It was running at about 3500 rpm at 60-65. Where should I start as far as diagnosing this issue?

Next, the SRS light is on. I read that this is on the same fuse as the stereo, and the stereo in the car is not original. Could that be related?

Finally, what scanner should I get to pull all of the codes from the car?

Thanks in advance.
