Version Coding shift module for W220

Hello,

Can any of the Mercedes techs out there please tell me if a new shift module on a 2000 W220 would need to be version coded once installed or if it will work right out of the box?

Thanks!

brian

The 220 shifter is part of the Drive Authorization System(DAS). It's shipped with electronic transport protection that must be de-activated before it will work. It may sound like overkill on the part of MB, but you have to remember that the 220 doesn't have a steering column lock, so the extra anti-theft measures are necessary.

ILUVMILS,

Thanks for the response. Looks like this will not be a plug and play job.

Thanks again,
Brian

Man this sucks!!

I found a new shift module on ebay for $270. However, I called my dealer and of course they will not install any parts they have not sold.

Do any of the independents have the equipment necessary to de-activate the electronic transport protection or am I totally screwed here? Dealer wants $650 for the module, $150 for diagnosis and who knows how much for installation. This is totally insane.

Thanks

This story doesn't surprise me. MB dealers don't have much sympathy for 220 owners when it comes to lowering prices.
