Lately when I put car in R to reverse into parking space or to get out of a parking space, the car won't move. I have to put the shift knob to Park then R for it to work. What could be causing the problem?


Most likely the steering column range shifter. The lever can  fail causing the problem you describe. I would recommend that you find a good shop that has Mercedes Star Diagnostic scanner that can verify this. It makes no sense to replace parts without proper diagnostics.

Thank you. On my way home the car while I was driving my car jerked back and Check Engine light came on then it went into Limp Mode. I just had emissions inspection and it passed. The jerking and check engine light is second time it happens.
