sounds like you have a auto gearbox fluid leak and is running low on fluid needs topping up and the leak fixed try and locate the leak area if its under the box and its a mercedes unit the wiring connector seals are favorite if its a zf box the prob with fluid leaks are not norm a problem unless the oil cooler has been damaged by a stone chip its behind the front bumper liner but which either way the fluid is more than likely low if you keep driving it you may damage the gearbox

the water heater control valves are front right down low behind the radiator and are electricaly operated ,the AC pipe that runs under the engine but above the sub frame could be corroded out as this is a common fault with these cars ,also the electrical solonoids that shut off the heaters can corrode up as well but i have known them to stick open.

You have plastic gears in the roof mech that tend to chip and break over time.

Take plenty of photos as you go and take your time.

disconnect the battery and connect it all up and leave battery off overnight. Put the key in the ignition but not turned on. Connect the battery in one bang, wait 15 minutes for the transponder chips in key and ignition lock to be paired by the ECM.

Sounds like traction lock in the differential is engaged. Try having the oil changed with the friction modifier additive. A bad speed sensor will affect locking and unlocking function. damage to friction plates will occur if not corrected.

I had a very similar issue, it wound up being a wire that had burned almost in 1/2. It was shorting out. You will need to get a diagram of your vehicles wiring and check the wires, most of the time it is somewhere close to the exhaust. .

We had a similar situation and we found out that the battery was the cause , even though it was new.

Try with another battery that you know is good from another car, if still having a problem , check the starter for drainage
