Well nyemba you have had a new gearbox fitted to your car at a garage that does not have a Star diagnostics ,you are braver than me,or did you have the speed plate replaced rather than the whole gearbox,you need Star,because the box and the speed plate need to be coded to the cars ECU,I suspect you will need to have the car moved by transporter to a local mercedes indy,to get the box coded,if you put your location somebody will suggest a indy for you to use.

While it is not impossible that both the gearbox and the ECU need replacing, it is always a worry when the garage claims to have found two unrelated faults. The only solution is to work with garages you trust.... Good luck with the repair.
