Good evening, First of all, apologies if this is in the wrong place as I am very new to the forum. To cut things short, I have a Mercedes e300 hybrid bluetec. It's a 63 plate and I've had it for 4 months and 2 months out of those were brilliant. The problems started around 2 months ago. The car was starting to go into some sort of limp mode where it wouldn't come out of the electric mode back into diesel, then after taking it to the Mercedes garage (Blackburn) they ended up sending it back on a recovery truck. I was told there seems to be a gearbox issue, however the car doesn't even start at all now. The dashboard has a light on which says 'battery malfunction'. Any clues as to what the issue may be? The car doesn't hold any charge at all, when I connect jump leads to it the electrics work but as soon as I take them off the electrics stop working. Any help at all would be appreciated as merc are trying to bill me £6000+ for a failed gearbox. They also had the cheek to say to me that 'the car shouldn't have been driving when you brought it in'
