Welcome to BW johndoe,

As the Thread Title says, No Car Repair issues in the New Members Welcome Forum.

The forum index is organized / grouped according to chassis designation, usually a letter followed by 3 digits / numbers, and sections cover all engine / versions the chassis came with.

To find the forum section = chassis for your car, please click FIND YOUR FORUM SECTION
And Complete your Profile by adding the year and model of your car, so it will show next to every future post under your avatar.
Members are not likely to search for the one post the model of the car is mentioned.

The forum section archives have a wealth of DIY / technical information.
When researching an issue / posting, you can also Search the forum archives of your chassis section via the 'Search Community' box on top..

The stickies on top of the 'Welcome' section will help to navigate the site.

Moving this to the w210.

Have a look at below,

055/151/P0730​
Selected gear not attained, transmission is in electrical limp-home-mode​
ATF oil level
Harness
ATF oil filter not installed
Shift pressure regulating solenoid
valve (Y3/6y2)
Command or Regulating, Shift Control Valves​
See 13/27 as well,
Check ATF fluid level, fill up as necessary,
see document AF27.00-P-0101A​

Make sure that the filter is genuine OEM (MB) as the aftermarket ones do not fit properly.
