I don't think Autozone's website information will be too helpful but its free. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. or try and get an online repair manual subscription. Check that the brake lights work, system requires brake light switch input to come out of park.
Cost of repar is about $960. Not counting towing. The security box under your shifter needs to be replaced. Part will most likely have to come from Germany,
this stuck in Park is part of your security system
my car had done the same
the dealer fixed it in less then an hour
There is enough information about it in YouTube ,take it easy it will be very cheap if you have the patience to do it you'll be surprise won't take you more than 4 hours.the problem is a piece that brakes inside the shift box that once you got it for 35 Dls will be again with patience enough to move your
S55 .get the aluminum part this time.
