Hi, I started my 416 Sprinter based motor home yesterday, first time in a couple of months, drove off down the road for a weekend away and noticed it was in manual not auto. Tried to select auto, no auto. Manually changed gear ok - but only to third. So turned round and went back home
I checked fuses and relays, all seem to be ok.
With the engine running and with my foot on the brake, I get "N" "1" and "R" , with-out the foot brake the "N" does not flash when trying to select a gear.
With-out the engine running I can select "N" "1" "2" "3" and "R", the hydraulic pump is running and is switching on and off as gears are changed and I can hear the gears being selected.
The engine will rev to 4000 rpm, I think 3000 is the limit for limp mode, or is there a separate limp mode for the gearbox?
The van is a 2001 with low mileage < 40,000 miles
Is this a known fault / problem or do I need it plugged in and the codes read?
Sorry my first post is for help.
