Answer 1
Did you install a scan tool to the computer? Is it capable of reading transmission codes? Do you have a check engine light, service engine soon light or any flashing lights on in the dashboard? -

yes it is on, they gave me a code of PO700. When it does this if I try to put in 1st gear of auto stick all the lites of all gears light up, only does this when car has been run awhile. -

I got the same issue this week and I was told that my TCM needs to be replaced. Transmission Control module, which by the way runs almost 400 dollars for the part and 225 dollars labor the dealer ship told me. It sits to your right side on top when you pop the hood.. I literally did it myself and I got the part for only 32 bucks from the junkyard -

My 2002 300M did the same thing today. I was at a full complete stop when the car jerked and the oil lamp light came on. The car had shut off. I restarted and thought that everything was fine. After 30 minutes, the car did a hard-shift and would not switch gears (I was in D, not the auto-shift). When I tried to switch to auto-shift, all of the gears lit on the panel. BTW the check engine light came on when all this happened. So my question is to Kaelling, did switching the TCM solve the problem? -

Transmission solenoid pack probably needs to be replaced. In may case, error code P1776 did appear. New part can be bought online for $250 plus installation labor. Since your problem occurred in 2009, probably resolved by now. Let us all know the resolution.

I can not use the auto stick to shift. The gear shifter will go in place but it doesn't register on the dash.
