    Default no reverse on my 1.9 cdti auto box

    recently bought a 55 plate vectra 1.9 cdti auto, all was fine until today when i selected reverse it didnt move, but when i select drive it goes through the gears fine and drives well, does this mean my gearbox is kna##ered or is this a fault that can be fixed. someone please help.

    Don't know if this would help, but you might try it: do a software update on the gearbox. I just did mine Friday and went from 7500 to 10005 version (or something like that). Don't know how many in between, but it's better to have the last software. It's all done with Tech2, so you have to find someone that has it and that has acces to all updates. I also checked the ECU software, but I had the last version. Saved some cash.

    yes when i select reverse the lights do illuminate, so does this mean it is a gearbox fault? could it be no oil as ive not checked or would that not make a difference.

    Default can a 1.9 cdti auto box be changed to a manual box

    a few months ago i changed the auto box in a rover 25 (52 plate)stepspeed to a manual i just added flywheel and clutch, changed gear linkage and put in new pedal box all from the donor car it wasnt too difficult the only trouble i had was finding the wires for the inhibitor switch so i could start it but once i sorted that the started and car ran great............so has anyone or know of anyone that has converted the vectra 1.9 cdti auto into a manual ? or even know if this would be possible as i know the vectra is a bit more advanced than a rover 25.

    or to make my life easier does anyone know where there is an auto box for sale..... someone must have one !!!!!

    There was a recall to do with the cooler seals, but if you had that problem I'd expect more issues overall rather than just reverse. If water has got in its a rebuild or replace, as the contamination will destroy various components.

    I've seen this asked before and the general opinion was the complication with the electronics would be a nightmare - probably cost more than the car was worth.

    I'd check the auto transmission fluid level for sure. Have to say I don't remember seeing that issue on here - various problems with auto boxes and contamination but not where just reverse has gone.

    Start with the cheapest one: change the oil in the gearbox.

    Cannot really understand how the issue would be lack of oil, as the car do'nt go in reverse, but does go forward, if it was an oil problem I would expect there to be issues using reverse & drive, its all the same oil afterall!!
