Hey There HouseCallAuto. Got A Minute?
Could you take a look at my question..."Is 2nd gear start normal for this models trans? It's in Mercedes benz Questions.. Hopeing you might know.
tx, I'm not very knowledgeable about transmission problems and this being a MB makes it all that much difficult. But no, starting in 2nd gear is definitely not normal. You need a tranny guy that knows MB, not just any guy. Sorry I cannot help you more with this. Try a battery disconnect for a few minutes and then see if the same.
