Hi,
I just wanted to thank 43sqd for his help and clear instructions for the problems I was having with our 99 ML430. The thread can be found at;

Thanks to his information I have successfully repaired the gearbox and the reverse lighting that has been an issue. It turned out that I had to replace the entire electronic switch in the gearshift.

Part of the reason I waited almost a month to finish this off was that right from the get-go I felt we were getting better mileage and I wanted to see if it would hold true. It has and we are now getting on average about two and a half more MPG. On our side-street and urban trips this represents around 18% improvement. The faulty connector in the gearbox must have been causing gear selection problems for some time.

Anyway thanks again 43sqd!!

Jim
