Transmission Stuck in 1st Gear?
Has this happened to anyone?
I have a 2007 S550.
Tonight on the way home from work, the car started with no problem but it seemed like the torque converted went south...lagging start with the car finally moving forward (hesitatingly) with the tach @ 3,000 rpm.
So I pull over and shut it down, restart and when I put it in gear I feel a lurch as the transmission engages. The Check Engine symbol is now lit and the car rolls out normally except that it won't shift into 2nd gear or any other forward gear for that matter. Its as though the transmission is stuck in some emergency-default mode.
Has anyone had a similar incident?
