Customer Question

C230 Automatic transmission shift is stack on N or D. Can not shift to R and Park

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is James.

Could you clarify a bit? Do you mean than when you shift into drive nothing happens, or that the shifter physically won't shift into reverse or park?

I was driving and everything was fine until I stopped. I couldn't move shift lever to Park. I can move from Drive to N then lever doesn't go any farther. It feels like it's hitting dead stop.

I apologize for the delay. What you describe sounds like a problem with the shifter cable...either it is broken or has fallen out of adjustment. Are you able to raise the car in the air and remove the belly pan shielding to inspect the transmission area?
