    Could be contamination of the transmission oil with water from the cooling system. Happens to quite a few Vecs due to failure of seals that keep the two fluids separate.

    No lights or codes, first thing I'd check is that the linkage is OK to the top of the gearbox, could be somethings come adrift?

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Just out of curiosity, you havent just jump started the car have you? The tiptronic gear box is a little sensitive to that, had it happen before with my ex's car. Starting the engine and leaving it running for a short while, then switch it all off again and wait an hour usually gives it all time to reset itself.

    Apparently it's fairly common with that type of gearbox. But I've only ever come across it the once on her car.

    i believe its going to be the speed senser if its only selecting some gears.
