SLK230 won't come out of park

Hi, My boss has an '02 230 that will not come out of park, with the car running and brake on. Is this an electrical or mechanical issue? He has had the car since new and never had this proble. Any suggestions?

The above is for a 320 but might be the same.
Do a search if it does not work

and tell him to join our forum.

I just had my 230's brake control cable that plugs into the back of the transmission break on me. The car doesn't recognize that the brake isnt depressed and wont let the key out of the ignition or come out of park. Waiting for it to come from Germany and takes a week and a half. Hoe yours is a simple matter.

Oh, that does not sound like fun, I hope this is a simple matter also. I have a '01 320 that I now have to delve into with a vario top issue, but being 5 degrees below 0 F this am, not such an urgent matter. Even with the problems, this is one fun car.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll see how he makes out and let you know.
