Transmission Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
1997 c280 stuck in 1st gear -only error code is P0341
Hi, a P0341 is a fault code for the camshaft position sensor. That fault code is not keeping your transmission from shifting.
Are you still there?
Can you report back with a little background on the problem so I can try to help? Has any work been done on the transmission? How many miles are on the car? Is the transmission permanently stuck in 1st gear or does it shift some of the time?
This came up all of a sudden with no warring.
I have not had any work done on this care in over 1 year.
The car was working fine on Monday, went to start it today and it wouldn't start. Wouldn't even crank.
I managed to get it started by turning the ignition to 2nd position, the on position, and waiting about 4 seconds, then turning the to start.
The transmition will not shift out of 1st gear, It will shift to reverse and operate in either reverse or drive, but in drive it stays in 1steven at normal operating temperture.
I just remembere3d that I took the car through one of those automated car washes on Monday.
Could this have caused an electrical problem with connector to the transmition.
Thanks for your help,
Also, where is the transmission Harness Connector located?
I think I need to check this out.
