Hiya, I hope you are all having a good day. This is my first post but I have looked at the forum before. But like others I have an issue with my Merc. OK here is the story. I bought this car from an auction in the dark in the rain, yes I know a perfect place to view a car! and buy one. Sold as seen. OK the problem I have with the car is that it seems to be stuck in second gear. You drive the car and it and the maximum you can get out of the car is 40mph at 3000 rpm. I am assuming it is second gear? 40mph? When you rev the car in park position it will go to 4500rpm and more but you move the lever to neutral and it will be restricted to 3000 rpm. The battery in the car is not very good and I have to charge it twice to start it. There are not any warning lights on in the dash and the oil level seems to be fine in the gear box. Could this be stuck in limp mode ?as I read somewhere on this forum.That when the battery falls below a certain level. The car reverts to limp mode. And if so how do I get it out of limp mode. Any help would much be appreciated. Thanks in anticipation.
