Slk partial limp mode

Hi guys,new here and glad to be part of this forum
I have a question regarding my slk r170,2001,2l petrol,kompressor;
Apparently the car went on limp mode..all the warning lights come on dashboard,flashing(stuck in 2nd or 3rd or 4th gear),when the warning lights went off,i could increase the speed...if i stop the engine the car wont start for at least 20min...anyway,by the time i search for ECU(as told by a specialist) i realise the car can still be drove odd times with no issues..
The diagnostic showed like 20 issues,(speed sensor,ETC,ESP), when reset showed ESP,ACC/TAC
Them last ones wont reset..
Ive spoked with 5 mechanics,they dont know for sure,speed signal sensor in gearbox,ECU,camshaft..
Any general knowledge much appreciated
Thank you

What update? that says the same thing as post 1

the slk loves a great battery, not a good battery that has been recharged
electronics give all kinds of errors without a great battery

I did that when the car wasnt starting..was checking..always convert with the engine on..but on that occasion i say i give it a go..
Today ive drove the car home..from garaje..4o minutes in trafic..was driving perfectly..as before..layd for 10 days in the garaje premises..so then..should be faulty again i suppose..as the car hadnt been started in 10 days..
Sorry,my sound silly but is concern me a lot as ive invest a lot of money into

We understand
first thing to do is really get the battery tested. really tested
not just starting voltage but comprehensive test/cells good or bad, etc
Even I charge my battery weekly

Hi there...about that limp mode on my slk 200,2001..at the pedal area..the previous owner had some blue lights installed,to go with the car color..they looked great..but ,day after day,that extra electric consumer was draining the battery(+the cold winter)so the ECU ,get errors because of the voltage shortage,so placed the car on limp mode to protect it..
This morning i cut off them blue lights,with a piece of sand paper ive clean the battery(still old one)connection..and voěla
The car is driving at the best,as before.
This might help some of yous.
Thank you very much for your advices..that saved my slk 😁😁😁
