2012 ML350 4MATIC (GAS) Small Accident, Airbags Deployed. Engine starts fine. Transmission stuck. Not even to Neutral. ANY IDEAS?

Codes Autel Maxisys Elite: TRANSMISSION: NO GEARS SHIFT     U010387 Communication with the ESM (Electronic Selector Lever Module) is faulty. The message is lost. C103 No CAN message was received from control module 'N15/5 (Electronic Selector Module (ESM/EWM))'. C075600 No CAN message was received from control module 'Transmission'. C075B00 No CAN message was received from control module 'N73 (Electronic Ignition Switch (EIS/EZS) control module)'. U119800 Communication with the Intelligent Servo Module (ISM) is faulty. U014600 CAN signal 'Outside temperature' from control module 'N10 (SAM (Signal Acquisition and Actuation Module))' or CAN signal 'Reverse gear' from control module 'Engine' is implausible. U010000 No CAN message was received from control module 'Engine'.  


When these cars get into a crash they often disable engine start. Not transmission. Based on all the codes that you posted this is more of wire harness issue. Some wires got damaged or got cut. I will inspect wire harness to the transmission.

Now the other thing that I wonder about is: Which one of the scanners you posted are stored and which are present? Did you try to clear them?


Thanks, Master!!. Honestly, I'm more a Toyota/Honda tech, Never Mercedes. After replacing the PyroFuse, I did a quick  code erase, and those codes aforementioned, and some others that I didn't post, did not clear or reappeared after 10 minutes engine at idle. I could pay for advice on how to proceed with fixing the no shift condition. Or, could you tell me if anyone (online website) could give me a hand with this pain in the neck? I live in Puerto Rico (80 degrees F all the time)

There is lost communication between several modules. It could be a problem with the central gateway module. It does the communication with the rest of the modules.

Did you check all the fuses?

Also any damaged wires from the accident?
