In the luxury car market the Mercedes Benz has made a name for itself and has managed to stay miles ahead of its closest competitors.


However, one of the most common issues encountered by Mercedes driver is the failure of the parking gear.


It is often noticed that drivers complain about the Mercedes failing to shift into park and this can be very inconvenient for the drivers to deal with.


Here are the reasons behind the failure of the parking gear in Mercedes.


If the transmission shift cable of your Mercedes which connects the shifter handle to the transmission gets broken, then the Mercedes will not go into the park.


Moreover, the shifter will not engage at all & the transmission cables are vulnerable to breaking as a result of stretching.


This happens in due course of time or is a result of speed shifting or jamming the Mercedes into gear.


If the shifter takes too much time to engage, then it can be ascertained that the shifter has malfunctioned or broken down.


A failing shifter will make it difficult for your Mercedes to put into park or change to any other gear and you can remove the boot covering the shifter to inspect the shifting mechanism.


If you come across any missing or broken parts then, the Mercedes should be repaired immediately without wasting any time.


Before breaking apart, the transmission cable gets stretched & whenever this occurs, you will find it difficult to put your Mercedes in the park.


Moreover, as the Mercedes is not in the park, you will struggle to turn off the ignition key and will also face the problem in removing the key.


Consequently, a stretched cable will also result in the misaligned shifter, which leads to a more serious problem like gear selector issues in Mercedes.


The above-discussed factors are some of the reasons behind the failure of the parking gear in your Mercedes Benz.


Whenever you witness that the parking gear has malfunctioned, then take your Mercedes immediately to an automobile repair shop to fix the issue.
