    Exclamation Auto Gearbox help!!!! Jumpin Jack Flash

    Hello All,

    Right when I first got the signum I had to get used to the auto and totally love it to bits, however over the ten months I have had it every two three months it trys to go into gear or something

    What I mean is when sat at lights with my foot firmly on the brakes the car kangeroo jumps once like I have tried to release the clutch and then settle back down. Its not a small movement the whole car jumps!!!

    Its a very random occurance and I dont fully understand how an auto works, but does anyone have an idea on what this could be as if I did'nt have my foot on the brake it would hit the car in front!

    Its an 06 plate if you need to know

    My car does the same thing or similar....when breaking for a red light and you fully stop the car does a little "jump" foward, my first thought was that the car behind had bumped me. I had that "issue" since I got the car, have no clue what or why does this, TBH I got used to it.

    I had an auto Omega once and that did to and was told that when you have your foot firmly on the brake when in gear the gearbox somehow goes into neutral and as soon as you take your foot off the brake gears are engaged. I have an auto veccy and it does it as well, its supposed to be a safety feature sort of thingy.

    The auto goes into neutral after a few seconnds of being stopped with your foot on the brakes, if you release your foot just as the lights turn to amber, you can them move off without the bump, or put it in 1 on the tiptronic box to move off smoother
