My Daughters 2001 slk230 started acting up in January ( shifting problem, check engine light on,then off, top not going down, battery dead after car setting only 3 days) One week before warranty expired the dealer replaced computer the dealer gave us the old computer it had been getting wet. The car is now having the same problems again like shifting). And she says if she stops and turned the car off then back on it will shift gears again.
I have replaced the battery and checked the alternator.
My question is where is the computer so I can see if the new one is wet. Also any other suggestions. The trunk leaks ???
Thanks, Stephen

My daughter says that sometimes the rpm's go way up and the transmsssion doesn't shift. And sometimes it just will not go past 3rd gear. Somedays it runs good.

When my 2001 230 wouldn't shift out of 2nd gear they had to replace the shifting module.
