I have a Mercedes Benz ML320 which has the shifter stuck in Park all the time. I replaced the brake switch and did not correct the problem.
I have disassembled the center console to get to the shifter. I was able to unbold the shifter and pull on the cables and get the shifter to move. However the shifter will not come out of park when car engine is on, or key is on and brake depressed. I understand that the brake has to be engaged to shift out of park (reason I changed the brake switch).
What other things should I check? What keeps the shifter from unlocking?
