    Default Autogearbox problem on my VX C LS 2.2

    Hi, Im new in this thread, can anyone give me any advise, It started when my car forgets it had a 1st, 2nd,3rd, and 4th gear and always stays in fifth. When I engage it into manual, it only shift 2nd , and 5th. and the cruise control wont work. Then the control indicator with car and spanner lit together with the control indicator for the engine exhaust. I bought it to my local vauxhaull garaged (Marshalls) and said it needs a CIM replacement. When I got it back sure enough all the faults on the dash were gone except for the same gearbox problem. As soon as I started it everything is back to normal but as soon as I reach 1500 rpm or 30 mph it will jump automatically to 5th gear and stays there, when I shift it to manual, it only stays on 2nd and 5th. The car is still at the garage until today. It is there since dec. 28, 2007. I really love this car. Its an 02 plate LS 2.2 auto.

    I had the same problem with my 52 plate 2.2 Auto SXi - I got rid of the car but was informed that it was the internal contacts in the gearbox (not sure exactly what this is or how correct)

    Im sure someone will come along with more advice
