Symbol 'F' on A160 semi-auto

Hi my name is Bertram from Australia. I recently purchased a 1999 A160 semi-auto.
Yesterday, the car just stopped mid-journey with a "F" showing on the dashboard LCD display... the car will only start when I press the break peddle but will not go into gear. However when the engine is off the gears feel like they select fine but the symbol 'F' remains.

Has anyone encountered this problem and can you provide a solution soasto get the car back on the road.
