Q: Doesn't show if car is on Park or Drive.

asked by on

My car does not shows anything on the dash if the car is on Park or Drive
My car has an automatic transmission.

It sounds like you may have a faulty instrument cluster or a short of some kind in the wiring of your instrument cluster. I would recommend having this issue inspected by a certified mechanic who is proficient with Mercedes Benz electronics repairs. This will ensure that the vehicle is diagnosed properly and will save time and money in the process.
