2002 CL 500 with intermittent issue, When it does not work I turn the key and the dashboard lights up when I go to crank, nothing, no click, nothing. I ran a hot lead directly to the starter, cranks fine. And when it's not working I cannot get the car out of park with the key on and foot on the brake. I jiggled the brake, no joy. I jiggled the shifter, no joy. replaced brake switch, no joy. Next is new bushings for the shifter linkage...anybody out there has any other ideas, this has been an intermittent issue over the last month..currently, an issue. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thnx

Yes I looked at all those posts on the shifter lever but my issue is different the engine will not crank never mentioned any of those posts and although I will open up that shifter and replace the lever that is badly engineered by Mercedes. The lever is available online aftermarket I think it's around $160…Also seen elsewhere where there is a bushing at the transmission linkage that requires regular replacement I'd say @ 100k intervals.
