I have just this week purchased a 96 SL500, after an incident where the batteries in the key fob went flat and wouldnt disengage the alarm/imobilizer the car now seems to be in limp home mode and wont come out of second gear.

Also when moving the shifter through the gears its really shoving the car forwards or backwards when engaging either drive or reverse, I have a 97 S500 where if I do the same type of thing there is a slight delay and the gear is selected with no fuss or lurching.

Anyone got any ideas, the really annoying thing is that I had the car independantly inspected before i purchased and they couldnt find anything wrong with it.

Many Thanks
