    HI there

    Yesterday, whilst my wifes car (C200 kompressor sport coupe 2002) was cold it would not shift out of Park. Only after 3 min, once the engine had warmed up - could I engage a gear.

    The same happened today.

    Any ideas?

    THanks

    Possibly the solenoid on the side of the gear selector unit sticking due to the cold.
