Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

With the gear box fault message this sounds like a fault is being detected with the gear box itself.This can be a failing solenoid or sensor in it causing this fault needing replaced.

This can cause a fail safe or limp mode causing no power or lack of power.

What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes checked/read out with a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicles data port to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.There should be at least one code set that will help to diagnose and repair this issue.A shop or dealer can read out and diagnose the codes for you if you do not have a scan tool to read the codes.But I suspect a faulty sensor or solenoid needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
