Customer: No information shows on display except when I release the read button, you have no messages
Customer: When I have the problem the engine becomes sluggish. If I then stop the car turn engine off wait 20 seconds and turn engine back on the problem is normally cured. I should have mentioned that this is a heart tonic gear box.
Customer: geartronic
Customer: This problem is dangerous if it occurs and it becomes necessary to accelerate quickly or it becomes necessary to climb a hill!,
Enes : It can be your sensor is going bad
Enes : but now to find out what sensor is acting bad you must use scsnner
Enes : it will give details like what to check
Enes : what you tested is manual test
Enes : but is not showing info
Enes : that now requires next step scsnner
Enes : most the time is one of engine control sensor or sollenoids going bad
Customer: Presumably then I will have to ask my garage to check this as I have no facilities. Thank you for your help.
Enes : Feel free to follow up again after you go to shop
Customer: Many thanks. Goodbye.
Enes : please if you can rate the answer positive my boss looks for your feedback from you to me to be positive
Enes : Thank you
