I start my car, and sometimes I cannot physically shift my car to reverse. on 2007 Mercedes-Benz E550

If I turn the car off and back on I am able to shift to Reverse. Also, ESP says it's inoperable, and Speedtronic Inoperable. Sometimes I turn the car off and back on and it goes away. Other times that does not get it to go away.

This could be a problem with the shifter assembly or the signal from the brake pedal that allows the shifter to unlock. A full computer scan and diagnostics would be required to pinpoint the issue. The ESP and Speedtronic are both Bosch systems. We are a Bosch Authorized Service Center and have all the factory training and diagnostic tools to properly diagnose this problem.
