Check the fluid level, did you change it recently? Maybe there is some damage to the transmission. Have it diagnosed, might be as easy as a faulty shift solenoid.

Hi, thank you, yes first thing I checked was fluid level and it was fine, changing oil today in gearbox, had it on a scanner in an auto garage but mc wouldn't read it for some reason, also checked grounds from engine and body, both read fine !!
