I have w220 2000...

I have w220 2000. Car won't crank at all. Replaced new battery, new remanufactured Bosch starter with solenoid (tested and working normal), new crankshaft and camshaft position sensor, new starter relay. Car was being backed-up and turned off immediately. Speedometer needle stopped and got stuck a 180 mph. Now it went down stuck to 80 mph. Gear can be moved from park position when key in position 2 (PRND). All lights in dashboard working, also headlights and radio. I noticed too that the PS (Park and Standard mode) indicator at the side of the clock is not showing.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

All fuses were checked and are all fine. All dashboard lights and function are fine except for the PS indicator not showing up.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Mercedes?

W220 S500 base submodel V8

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just told you and yes I am.

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

so far from what you are describing the issue is either with the cars communication system or with the shifter module.

so can you tell me if when you put the car into park, does the car actually go into park or can you still move the car by pushing it when the shifter is in park?
