A160 elegance model 2001 5 door hatch back,gear not changng, is chances to fix itthere
Disclaimer - beware - these little cars are very complex and easy to destroy computers.
1st option: No details re history so will assume it is in limp mode only driving in 2nd or reverse?
If so check fluid level in gearbox when hot -run for 20 minutes in driveway should do the trick. Find sealed filler hose and insert aftermarket dipstick. (There are youtube videos on how to make DIY one out of curtain spring wire) If level alright it will be valve body grunge and needs expert auto to clean. Otherwise add EXACTLY 500ml of synthetic fluid from Mercedes. try operating after heating gearbox as before. If good get auto serviced.
2nd option: Operate emergency Park release if Gear change not moving. remove gear change module cover and check connections in circuit board.
Very good website called Lofty's A160 page for DIYER's

I have a 1998 mercedes benz that i want to tow
to tow long distances you have to remove the tail shaft. Next to tow long distances safely you will need an "A" frame hitch attached to the front of the car onto a tow ball of the towing vehicle To be honest the cost of towing the vehicle ( fuel costs ,tyres , rigging for tail lights and brake lights --legal requirements, towing capacity of the towing vehicle- will not make it a practical solution. Consider having a car transport do the job as it will be cheaper in the long run with no vehicle and legal requirements.

Will bad brake sensors make mer benz lock in park
Not brake sensor but brake switch can cause that, its located behind the brake booster in the engine compartment, make when you apply brake your lights comes on, if they don't come on then you have a bad switch or a blown brake fuse and this will cause the gear lever locked in park
