D TO R - GEAR BOX

Post by A.Desinformation » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:50 pm

Hi everybody,

While I was driving my XE today, the person sitting next to me made a mistake and switch the gear D to R mode (approximately it was 20-25km/h, on the straight road). Instantly the R light started flashing but no backward; moreover, it felt like on neutral mode/ and I took N and than stopped it instantly.

I heard no sound from the gear or but only thing i realized car was on the Neutral mode like.

All in all, should i go to the service?

P.s: friend is a mercedes owner and he estimated that it was a volume control, lol.


Yours,

I doubt anything will be damaged. The gearbox ECU would prevent R engaging. If it drives as normal then no issue with it imho. :D

I hope so.

It felt like XE's automatic transmission did not even hesistate or doubted to shift to R while was in D mode. As i mentioned above, it was like stay in N'eutral mode.


But you know, this is the first time such a thing happened and I want to make sure.

Maybe i am too worrywart and my question could be way absurd to talk on it. On the other hand, money is not getting easy 'at least it is for me'.


Thank you for your reply, btw.

To make sure then take it to your dealer and ask them to check it. I am not an expert I make sauasages for a living. :o
