Unfortunately, you have a problem. This unit is very good about reporting problems to the computer. Someone who knows how to use and properly interpret a trans capable scanner can get the needed information. You have to do your homework and find a good, honest shop that can also access European computers. In my town there are probably only 3 shops that can access and only 2 that understand the data, mine is one of those. This does not mean you need a trans but it is a possibility that hopefully an honest shop will look at your car for you. Transman

you might try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to reset the trans ECU.
