Won't start unless in Neutral
OK, got the speed sensor code for my 2006 350slk. Got f'd with the 722.9 tranny. Pulled conductor plate and sent off for service. Replaced with fluid and filter and reprogrammed plate. POW! starter burns out on 1st try and fries fuse. Replaced both. Now it wont start unless in Neutral. Got the codes cleared. Only code that shows is MAF. BS because its new.
Any suggestions? Dealer says no neutral safety switch anymore. Now it is part of the shifter mechanism. Can replace for 142.00. Should I do that? Is NSS bs or true? When removing plate I disconnected 2 o2 sensors, dropped the exhaust( Part of starter replacement) and unhooked the round electronic plug to the tranny. Is there another cable from the shifter to the tranny? In pictures I see one from the shifter mech running back like a tail. Could this be the cluprit? I do not remember another cord. Thanks
