Help, my 2002 SLK32 AMG, 5 Speed automatic is stuck in first gear. It has 80,000 miles.
I usually let it warm up and it kicks down in RPM's then its ready to fly.....but now its stuck. Any suggestions? ??F)
Thank you!

I think she means the box isn't changing gear, as in 'stuck in first gear' not that the shifter is stuck in park - but I might be wrong...

I'm always wrong. I suffer from 'married with children' syndrome

If it is a matter of not shifting to higher gear you might be in limp home mode. Do you have a CEL light burning? Get the OD2 codes read.

What is the CEL light? I don't have any dash idiot lights on.
Ican put it in drive but it won't go to 4th or lower-and the RPM's won't go down as I start driving.
