If any one wants more info ie part numbers or pics of the parts let me know.

MB Sprinter 211 CDI

I have a problem with a 2003 Sprinter 211 CDI. It is a semi automatic which means that when I engage from neutral to automatic it is supposed to display letter A in the cluster. However it only shows first gear. I tried to drive it and I can only shift gears manually since the automatic does not engage. Moreover I can only do this up to the third gear. After this it wont go shift to the 4th , 5th or 6th.
Reverse function shifts clean, the first 3 gears shift clean (manually) also. Any ideas please? It would be great of a help!

Thank you!

Sounds like the Clutch travel sender (G162) has failed which causes the following:

• Gearbox emergency mode will be activated.
• Gear changes in manual mode are then only possible up to 3rd gear.
• An “F” appears in instrument gear indicator.

See Page 56 of this document: http://www.volkspage.net/technik/ssp/ssp/SSP_372.pdf

Its worth studying this document as it really does explain just about everything that goes wrong with this gearbox.

(Its a VW document, but same sprint shift gearbox was used in both Sprinter & Crafter).

Problem turned out to be a faulty breaker that triggered the gearbox in the emergency mode. Which was a huge release for me. As for the other issue mentioned I will look into that.

Thanks Mike once again and have a great weekend ahead!

Hi everybody, I'm looking to buy a Mercedes sprinter 2005 - 2006 model. It is a 5 speed automatic. I'm told it's a proper auto, not the peselect manual/ auto.
It's the 316cdi mob model. Can anybody tell me whether there are any problems with this model.?
Thanks heaps, Daz
