2000 ML320: Cannot get it out of park and into drive
My car recently started getting the BAS/ESP light. A few days ago, I strated having some trouble getting the car out of park and into drive. But I usually succeeded within a few minutes and scheduled an appointment for this coming Friday to get it checked out. Otherwise, the car drives perfectly fine. Today, however, I tried for about 10 minutes and could not get the car out of park.
I read on the forum somewhere that the problem is associated with the brake pedal switch. Is that true? Would changing the the brake switch fix it? I also remember reading somewhere that the instructions on how to change the brake pedal switch are posted online somewhere -- but I can't seem to find them. Could you some be kind enough to post the link?
And what the "manual shift lock release"? I read that you can get the car out of park and into the drive by utilizing this thing. Where is it located? I need to get it to the dealership. A tow truck cannot enter the part of my house where the car is parked.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Checking and replacing the brake switch is very easy.
-Unscrew the driver side footwell cover.
-Disconnect the OBD port from the cover before removing the cover.
-Unplug the switch cables.
-Turn the switch and it will pop out.
Pictoral information on manual shift lock release can be found in the manual, "Towing the vehicle" section.
Picture is from my car MY2002.
