Hi guys. I own a 2014 CLA45 AMG. It has done 11k miles. I have been noticing a problem since a month but it happens once in a blue moon. my car sometimes changes gear on its own in automatic mode, I mean like it shows P R N D on the screen but it changes to 1 2 3 4 5 6 7, like when we use paddle shifter. I don’t use the paddle shifter but still sometimes this happens. Then it up shifts gears on it own as if I’m using the paddle shifter to upshift them. I had a bad battery which I thought would be the reason of this bt I got my battery changed few days ago and still it did it again. It keeps on changing from full automatic to paddle shift to automatic and paddle shift till I stop the car, put it in parking and then drive again so it stops happening. Please help

No nothing near the centre console. How would that affect this? And is this a serious kinda problem or minor?

this kind of thing would happen if you accidentally nudge the paddle shifters it temporarily goes into manual mode then back to automatic after a bit. If you're sure you didn't nudge it then it may be an electronic glitch in that area... would have your dealer look into it if it's a problem. I almost always drive M mode so I wouldn't notice if this happens.
