Default 'Gearbox Fault' P38 2.5 DT Auto.. Why?

Hi all..

When I start my car and put it in 'D' nothing happens and the car doesnt move. Then when I rev it to about 2500rpm it kicks in and says 'Gearbox Fault' and then will let you drive but a little slower, like its in 3rd all the time.

Also doesnt disply 'D' on the left hand side of the LCD display.

I can put it into 1,2 or 3 and drive in these but as soon as it goes in Drive it doesnt like it. Reverse works fine, as does the low range gears...

Theres no noises, or other problems, its had a new battery, starter, fuel injection pump, but has been fine for a couple of months.. now this!

What could be the causes?

Could be the selector switch contacts that control the auto box ECU as it works in the other gears.

i know what this is, its the ECU has failed. its under the passenger seat. get a new ECU on ebay for about 20-40 make sure all the barcodes and numbers match on the front of the box and should be a straight sway no computer needed. this happened me last summer had to go to 2 main stealers and cost me a fortune.

Match the barcodes to the one of the box I've got already?

yes the V8 is different to the 2.5DSE it has to be from a 2.5. and the barcodes have to match other wise it wont work. ring the local breakers yard tomorrow maybe. i got the problem before i knew about this website and bought it from a local breaker for €120 here in ireland, only to realise i could have got it else where for a fraction of the price. keep your eyes on ebay and also look at people who are breaking 2.5dse's
