S430 transmission winter mode
I test drove a 2000 S430 with 80k miles and the only thing I noticed was that it wouldn't switch from W to S mode... hence it seemed stuck in winter mode (in W mode, it was accelerating from a standstill starting in 2nd gear which I believe is correct). I was pressing the switch at different times but nothing happened, even if in Park or after shutting off & restarting again.
Other than this, I really like it... so any ideas on troubleshooting this?
