Transmission in Limp (Safe) mode -- Help!!!
Vehicle Make - Mercedes Benz
Vehicle Model- E-430
Vehicle Year- 2000
Approximate mileage- 60,000 miles
I have a big problem. I took my benz in for a simple oil leak on the electrical connection of the transmission. The mechanic could not remove the screw to remove the plug and after much force broke the plug on the transmission and decided to remove the transmission oil pan and Valve body and replaced the part that he broke. For lack of a specific part name it is where the you plug the electrical socket coming from the computer to the trans and is the plastic piece which bolts on to the valve body. He put back everything but the car is still in limp mode. It has reverse and 2nd gear. Check Engine Light is on. Diagnostic report said a problem with Solonoid A. Is that possible or a reset is needed? If so, how do you reset this mode?
