Question Details

My check engine light comes on and off- The car has to be shut off in order to go back into park- transmission goes into safe mode but once I shut it off-take the key out and restart - it drives normal. I already changed the 13 pin connector in transmission with new o-rings. The car soft 2 analyzer says the EMS lever positioning module is faulty. Where is this located and how to I go about buying one??? Is it under the shifter??

You are getting an error for the shifter module. Before you change that, check the transmission fluid level. Those symptoms can be from low trans fluid.

The shifter module is below the gear selector. For your car it needs to be coded with the VIN from your car or it will not work. Installing a used shifter will prevent the car from starting. This is a job that is for a Mercedes specialist as most owners like you don't have the tools to properly program the new shifter.
