2000 S-430
I think I figured out what is wrong with our 2000, S-430 Its in limp mod, code PO-748. Been setting in the carport for 2 years, while I try to get the funds up for her repair. Thought Ihad done that, and found a great shop in N Tx that works on Benz. I sent e-mail to Park Place Motorcars Fort Worth today. They say send vin number and they will send me a price. This is there e-mail I got back.

Park Place reply.. The floor shifter is $1,102.50. It will also require the replacement of the trim piece around the shifter which is $571.30. The shifter is a “theft relevant” part which means it is part of the security system on the car. It can only be installed in our shop and we can only sell it to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Is this a true state ment? I cant buy it and install it myself. I have a use to be(30 years DFW) M Benz guy that has opened a shop close to us that is going to do the install. The car only has 80k on her, were 2nd owner both being older folks.

If it is in fact the shifter that is causing your problem, labor to install the shifter in your S Class is $680.16." Park City M B "

2000 S-430
2000 M B S-430 PO 748

The shop thats helping us is really gone out of his way to do this as low budge as possable. He is pertty sure it
is the conductor plate. Witch will be alot better than the Dealer only shifter.

2000 M B S-430 PO 748 in lip mod, 80k miles on her

(the most likely cause of your fault code po748 if that is all there is would most likely be the conductor plate in the transmission.. the cost to replace this would be as follows... the parts for this would be the conductor plate, would recommend all 3 solenoids while in there anyway, gasket, filter, adapter seal, and fluid)

A little under $700 total


This sounds like a good price. Anyone mind giving me there thoughts on it.

Does anyone know the exact name of the tool they use to reset the codes? Its not a OBDII I'm guessing..

1999 Mercedes E320
Good day. E320 problem

Hello, I have a 1999 E320 recently the trasmitransm went into second gear and will not come out. It has reverse and second gear only. I changed the conductor plate thinking that was it but still the same problem . I remembered a soda had spilled into the gear shifte so I'm thinking that is it .I was about to order a used one I found but wanted to ask would it need to be recoded? I do not have a dealership anywhere close to me so I have always worked on my E320 myself .Any help or advise would be appreciated. I have been really trying to get my car back up and running. Thank you for any help .

Shifting panel

Hey so I had water spilled on my shifting panel and when I was driving it said my car was in park so I pulled over to try and put it in park and put it back into drive after I did this I couldn’t shift gears it was stuck so I turned off my car and try to start it back up and nothing wouldn’t click over nothing. My windows wouldn’t work I couldn’t do anything so I let It dry out for a day and took a blow dryer to it and now my windows work but still won’t start! Anybody have any answers for me?

2001 CLK 320
Hi, I just read your post from February this year. I have the exact same problem with my 2001 clk. I spilled water on my shifting panel. When I reached my destination car would not go into park. I had to turn my car off to get from drive to park. When I got back in my car it hesitate a moment before starting and then was a very rough shift from park to reverse. Drove home, noticed "check engine" light was on, had same problem when I arrived home and had to turn the car off to get the shifter to go into park.

Did you resolve your issue and learn anything that might shed some light on my situation? I read another persons experience - they said they took to a mechanic who dried the circuit board and reset the computer, it was a very quick and inexpensive fix. The post was from many years ago though, I decided to try to connect with you as your experience was only a couple of months ago.

Anyway, would appreciate hearing your resolution! Thanks so much!

2001 CLK 320
I am having same problem since yesterday when I spilled water over my gear shift. Electronic starter does not start right away, it takes a second to turn over. Shifting between gears is very rough with a loud thump. Transmission will not shift into higher gears so car will not go over approx. 20 mph. If you can shed any light on this for me by letting me know how you resolved your problem, I would be very appreciative. I am new to MD and do not yet have a mechanic. I have been researching german car/MBemz mechanics, but would love to know if you have a good mechanic to refer. Thanks so much!
