W203 Gear Problem
Hi guys ,

I'm a new member here and seek an expert opinion about this.

I just got myself a 2002 C200 W203 Japan Specs car last two weeks and been driving it eveywhere.

But something occured today. When i turn on the engine, i didn't see any gear indication as usual. And when gear is on D, it stuck on lower gear. And, to park the car, I need to turn off the engine, then only i can move the gear to P.

Really sorry for the explanation (A lady has a different way of explaining things)

Looking forward for a tips from all the members here.

Thank you.

Re: W203 Gear Problem

Welcome to Mybenz.

The problem could be resolved just from a simple (changing the ATF) to the more complicated and expensive solutions.

Why don't you bring it to the specialist merc workshop to check the actual cause.

Suggested as well that since you have just got the car to send it to the workshop for complete check. You may not know the previous maintenance history of the car so better you start it, change all the regular lubes and others as recommended by the workshop.

Good luck.

Re: W203 Gear Problem

Thanks for replying.

So this is what I did after I posted my question here.

I went to a Merc Specialist Workshop by the name of Udina Enterprise, located in Kota Damansara.

Told the specialist about the situation and after some consultation. Electric kit changes, atf oil changed, engine oil, engine compressor oil, fuel filter and other small parts changed.

So i went home with no worries since there's no more 'check engine' indicator and all seems pretty smooth.

After a day, the same thing happened (no gear indicator/check engine indicator appear). So i went back to the shop. And he sort of check something with his computer. I saw the error at is says 'EGS error'? So now i'm waiting for him to quote me.

And for time being. It happen on and off. So if ever I see no gear indicator, I need to turn the engine off again. wait for a while and on again. If the indicator appear, then only i can drive.

Re: W203 Gear Problem
1st , please check the gear lever relay at the front SAM unit
That were three similar relay
Relay I , relay K & relay S ...

Relay I ... is for Horn System
Relay K ... is for Chassis System
Relay S ... is for Engine Starter System

The relay K ..
May effect the Functioning of the Gear Lever System

The Gear Lever Position P R N D
May not be read in the instrument Cluster

For a Quick Test ...
Just Exchange the Horn Relay with the Gear Lever Relay for Test ...

But the actual problem .. still need to visit a workshop
To Hook Up a computer let the Computer to determine the Fault

Hope this helps
