I assume this is an April Fool’s post. If not this idiot is doing 115mph on a road somewhere near you! >:(
In third gear!  ;D

The superior 3.0l auto would do 129mph in third.  Apparently.


To the OP, are you reading the TCM, or the engine for codes. They are different ECUs.

My 3.2 use to do this, floor it of the lights or were ever with sport mode in, fault code would flash up,, cured it by not using sport mode, and mine had 3.0L downpipes fitted.

Update to my problem, sports mode does not display on dashboard anymore and Car is very slow to move from a standing start and need to engage gears 1,2 and 3 to drive away. Last night whilst navigating some fierce road hump sports mode lit up on dashboard and dove as normal in drive for about an hour. Sports mode stopped working again and I suspect problem is between auto gear shift lever/button and gearbox wiring. How do you remove gear shift lever to change or fix. Any help much appreciated

What is the gear selector light doing, is it flickering about or is it stable on the selected gear?  Could be the gear selector switch on the side of the gearbox needs cleaning.  :-\

The poor acceleration in Drive is the gearbox in limp mode, hence why 1,2 and 3 work ok manually.

 So what your saying is, follow the handy guide, in the relevent section within the forum, on how to remove and clean the selector switch.. :o
