Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is***** sounds like a fault with the brake light switch. When the switch malfunctions it will not send the signal to the shifter to release the shifter. It will also cause the ABS warning lights to come on. The brake lights may still work even when the switch malfunctions.
Let me know if you have any questions. Kindly rate my service when you are done.
The brake light switch can tend to be intermittent. There should have been some fault codes stored in the traction control module for the brake light switch. The next time this acts up you should check the codes to see if they indicate a bad brake light switch.
Let me know if you need anything else.
