I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Hello,
Please have the fault codes read out with Star Diagnosis computer and also check the fuses under the seat. Most common cause for the symptoms is failed sprintshift electro-hydraulic pump. It is mounted on the left side of transmission. Knocking on it might make it work for a short while.

There are other possible causes as well, but they can be pinpointed only with the diagnostic computer check.

regards,
Stan
