Mercedes C-Class automatic gear selector module fault.

C-Class gear lever fault

The C-Class W203 and pre-facelift W204 has a common fault with the automatic gear selector module / gear lever.

This gear selector will cause problems preventing selection of any forward or reverse gears until the ignition is cycled. The gear selector position will not be recognised on the gear display or will show incorrectly. If the vehicle is in gear when the gear selector module fails you will find that you are not able to select park (P), again until the ignition is cycled.

There will be no warning lights when the gear selector lever fails but there will be fault codes stored, scanning the vehicle with diagnostic tools will reveal these as selector lever position detection failed and CAN signal selector lever position.

Rather than purchasing an expensive replacement from the manufacturer, which will only come with a short one-year warranty and will still have the inbuilt fault – we offer a far more cost-effective solution: we can test and rebuild your C-Class automatic gear selector lever and provide an unlimited mile lifetime warranty as standard.

 

 

Common Failure symptoms:

  • Does not select reverse
  • Will not select park
  • No gear selection at all
  • Stuck in gear
  • Selector position not recognised on display or shows incorrectly

 

Common fault codes:

  • P1856 – Selector Lever Position Detection Failed
  • P240C – CAN Signal Selector Lever Position N15/5 Is Not Plausible
