Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What would happen if a 2016 Sprinter was shifted into park while traveling

transmission or is it electronically impossible?

There's a fail-safe built into the transmission that won't allow the trans to be shifted into park above a certain speed just prevent damage from this happening. What speed it is, I don't know, and I've never wanted to experiment to find out. Also, shifting to reverse at high speed causes the transmission to shift to neutral.
