Trans locked in limp mode. Usually could reset by putting in park and restart engine. It's been happening since purchase but dealer said no trouble codes were found & it was returned to me after x3 (could not duplicate). Dealer relates it is a modulator/control board now, w/ MB proprietary codes so he can't fix it; it has to go to a MB dealer. My question: should not a MB get more 24K before transmission failure
As above.Shop I usually use says it has to go to MB dealership due to propriatory code software related to a defective control board/modulator inside the trans. Purchased 2008 w/ 6K miles. It has been going to cripple mode since purchase. Pull over, put in park & restart & it would reset. Took vehicle in several times to dealer where purchased w/ aforementioned complaint & no error codes in diagnostic box or could not duplicate. Now at 24K it is locked in this cripple home mode & only a MB dealership can repair. Why does a MB transmission crap out at 24K? It has been very well cared for and I have never abused it. Must have had a rough first 6k miles? What does this type of repair cost? Could I convert to a manual?
