He's got long stretch of his own road and than another stretch of private road he shares with 2 neighbors. Thanks to the Internet he could work 2 days from home. Than it took him several hours to commute to Seattle.

Check

codes in the tcu.
Could be water intrusion into the electrical connector.
Maybe it is not dead.

a service associated joked with me saying well, since your car is old, you have summer and winter modes..then they became standard and winter..now it is called sports and comfort :)

as far as i know, all it does is to start the car in '2nd gear' both F and R

Yes, "W" is winter and "S" is summer.
W means that once the car is warmed up, it starts in 2nd. While cold, or in S mode, the car starts in 1st, and is therefore likely to rip the tyres loose if adhesion is at all dubious. Winter driving requires a soft foot on both pedals, and W makes that easier.

Push the throttle all the way down in W and you get S mode anyway... I drive in W all the time, unless someone really annoys me, then I hit the button. On AMG's, S mode shifts later too - it's what I used once in the E55 to catch some french Lotus Elises on the Julierpass. My, they were surprised...
