wet 500sl

MBENZ thanks for the reply. The car got wet in a rain storm. I drove the car 150 miles after acquiring it and it runs excellent. Initially it shifted ok, but sluggish in first gear and then it went into safety mode {2nd gear}. I think the trans computer is under the passenger foot well and this was the height of the water intrusion.Someone said that there is an additional fuse block besides the one in the trunk and under the hood. I also think that the top control computer is also under the footwell. Any ideas? This is my second Sl {87 560} and I now also own a 320ml which has been a great vehicle. Unfortunately my dealer is 1500 miles away and has not been too free with any assistance. Any way to check the tranny fluid level?If I could get the tranny working ok , I can get it to my dealer for the top repair. thanks greatly mike
