Having problems with your 2007 Dodge Sprinter ?
2007/2008 Winnabago - View Sprinter Mercedes Chassis and Drivetrain.
Stuck on trip with the shift lever stuck in low gear and transmission not shifting. It sticks in park unless you release it by pressing a button below the shifter, then it is stuck only in low gear. It runs as if it is in some form of "lock out" and only runs in a "cripple mode".
Just stopped for a fill-up and couldn't get it out of park, then found the button but can't get it to shift.
Check and see if the brake lights are working.....and you need the key on for this....there is a shift interlock tied into the brake switch....if they are not working it will not release the shifter......it is also possible the shifter assembly itself has gone bad
Only have manuals here in spain,it sounds like the computer control of the gearchange is playing up,either the antitheft or a fault somewhere is causing this to lock in.try this i know it might sound stupid but if your stuck it might help.disconnect main start battery both terminals and hold the two together for about 30s then reconnect and try again but make sure vehicle is locked up and key in your pocket before try it, ,just in case it locks itself .Failing which try locking and unlocking door with master 3 times slowly then jump in quick and start within 15 secs.If none of this works then call dealer and hope they can diagnose fault quickly.
