Good day, long story short. 

Last week I bought Mercedes Benz glk350. Vehicle are after car accident. The problem is that the transmission are completely blockt. Dashboard not showing any gear. Shifter also does not respond.

Any idea where is the problem? Many thanks for help



Is this car still crashed? Or it has been repaired?

Have you bought it with this problem, or it occured afterwards?




When you don't see any gears on the dashboard the problem is often the gear selector. 

You may want to read the trouble codes with a Mercedes scanner. 

It looks like you may have multiple issues. 

This car was in an accident but no flooding correct? 

Yes, no flooding only accident. Somewhere I read that front right SAM failure can cause that kind of problem. It make sense?

Yesterday one guy try to read trouble codes. He told me that there is no connection with airbag and gearbox modules.

If there is no connection to the modules you need to address that problem first. It could be the central gateway module that is the problem.

Yes it could be a SAM that is causing the other issues.
