"Hello. My battery went dead. I jumped off my 2002 C 230 kompressor and now the transmission won't shift when accelerating. It will go in reverse and drive however. When I try to tap shift the numbers don't move on the dash. Also the S and W button do."

Do you

The computer probably needs to relearned its programs due to low battery voltage, also might want to check and test the throttle position and vehicle speed sensor-

The computer has to relearned its programs/memories to control the engine management system could be 50 cycles of start ups who knows to gain its memories back-
