all lights are on just keeps coming up transmission malfunction service now and the spanner
Expert:  Marc Webster replied 7 months ago.
it sounds as if the auto transmission has picked a fault up when you changed the battery, the gearbox is now running in a safe mode. if you take it to have the fault code cleared it will rectify this and also reveal the fault. i believe it will be just because the power was disconnected shortly.
