Is the transmission stuck in 2nd gear? Does the vehicle move forward? Is there any lights on in the dash?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
it moves the only light is the check engine light
Mercedes Mechanic: Michael Warfield, Factory Mercedes-Benz Technician replied 8 years ago

The fault code should aid in the diagnosis, but the transmission is in limp home mode and that is why it is in 2nd gear. Whenever there is a fault in the trans, it goes into this mode.
