Automatic transmission - move to neutral

2003 SL 55 AMG

I need to get the shifter out of park so that I can get the car on a flatbed and delivered to my mechanic. Both batteries are charged, however the car will not start. Just prior to this, I had a Check Engine Message.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Did they change something on '03-up?
On all my old cars, the key in ignition at position#1 or #2 will let me shift to any gear without starting the engine.

They must have. Earlier when the key would move to another position, I still could not get any movement. Now I cannot even get the key to move. Yesterday a Mercedes repair shop mentioned that it was probably something with the security system and I would have to get the dealer to work on it. Thanks for your response.
