I have a 2000 E320 the dash lit up with every light possible

Customer Question

I have a 2000 E320 the dash lit up with every light possible went into "limp" mode and stayed that way until I got it home. Woke up the next morning, just the check engine light was on. Car drove perfectly fine to MB dealer. They initially said it was probably computers. Called yesterday and said they were in "best guess scenario" because they could not make the car have the problem again. They are recommending a new shifter. I am not sure what to do at this point. Any advice?
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: The Check Engine light stayed on steady when I drove it to the dealer.
JA: Are you fixing your E320 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, I took it to the dealer
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hi im kevin i personally the fact car drove fine there and they cannot get fault to reoccur .i would ask them to reset faults and get car back to try as it may have been a one off and if not and it does it again at may give them a clearer indication as to the cause as it sounds as though they are struggling
