    When the engine is off my W212 steering is very tight. As a result I have not tried forcing the wheel around to see if there a steering lock will engage.

    Is there a steering lock on the E250 W212?

    You can hear when you put the key in,, if a lock you will hear it go off as the key is inserted

    Probably if the shift is on the steering column no room for it.

    Or maybe no one wants to steal a car with the 7g box :shock:

    Actually, it is something I've thought about, but never done anything about finding out about. ;) ;) I know that f I turn my ignition off while still in Drive, the gearbox will automatically go into Park.

    Remember hitting the park button on the stalk a few times with both of my old R classes, nothing happened, same if you hit reverse while going forward, it won't let you do nout!!!

    I'll trust you ...... I just know that my gearbox will try if I do the same! :lol::lol:

    Apparently the autobox on my Omega won't shift into 1st if I try it at 100mph (on my private track :rolleyes:) but I've never tested it! :rolleyes::rolleyes:
