Hello Benz lovers!
My transmission doesn't shift gears anymore .
A couple days ago, I was making a right at a stop sign and I manual put into 4-3-2-1 (i was an idiot, i don't know what i was thinking - "to get more power" and launch fast, duh! )
A couple seconds later, I think, I noticed that would not shift.
Pull over, stop the car, try again nothing, i tried manual shifting-nothing, disconnect minus at the battery, wait 5 min, same. Would only work in reverse and Drive - in 1st gear.
A friend checked the codes for me:
P0715 - turbine input shaft speed sensor circuit
P0720 - shaft speed sensor circuit
I have a car for more than 5 years and I hate to see it gone.
A local shop specialized in transmissions for German cars said $1700 to fix it with 6 months warranty . I live in South Florida.
Car is a 1997 C230 with 233K miles (5 speed automatic).
Any advice is appreciated
