3.0 V6 Auto Gearbox Problem
« on: 22 November 2018, 19:58:43 »

Hi,
My 3.0 V6 Elite has developed a Automatic Gearbox Problem, The car feels like its pulling away in 3rd or something and the Snow Flake & Sport Buttons are no longer working, the snow button was flickering and so was the Sport Button light on the dash, if I use the gearbox as a manual and pull away in 1st its fine and change up as I need, anyone have any ideas??

Something has upset the gearbox ECU.

When you move the stick, do the LEDs by the gearbox setting move in line with the stick, or do their own thing?

Sound like it might be related to the selector switch :-\

Yes All the LEDs light up
All the LEDs at the same time? or one LED at once matching the position of the gear lever?

- that tells me that the selector switch is OK

Next step is to read the gearbox error codes

Just re read your original post. Flickering lights tend to be caused by loose connections or broken wires.
Paying someone to read the codes may not be the best use of your hard earned if the root cause is a loose connection  :-\
If you are able to read your own codes then that would be a different matter though.

The flickering hasn't came back on, if you go through the gear manually it work fine, but if you stop in drive and go to drive off again it pulls away in 3rd, so every time I stop I return it to 1st gear and go back through the gears again, there is a slight judder when I change it from 1st to 2nd but drives fine

I had the codes read today, and the Snap-On code reader couldn't find the gearbox!!!!
The Snap On Code Reader works fine, I think the problem is with the Omega, its as if the car didn't have a gearbox fitted???

Are they using the scanner as an OBD tool, or with the appropriate Vauxhall 'key'? Snap-On scanners require lots of keys, bought separately at great expense; mine has about 2 dozen with it, although the tool no longer works.


Any OBD scanner will only read the engine ECU, as that's all the standard covers.
