Dear customer it seems to be a problem with the automated gearbox, what happens is that when we use the paddles basically the changes are manual or we decide at what time to make the changes but when we use the selector the computer makes the changes automatically, it is possible that there are problems at the level of the transmission module that is causing the changes are not done correctly, it is good to check the diagnosis to check what is happening at the level of the transmission.

Hi I had it checked today the error code is P1707 but I was also told there was no guarantee that it was the gear selector box as it could be due to the brake switch have you ever heard of that causing this issue thanks

Dear customer, this error code is a bit complicated to diagnose because it simply means that the gear selector is not entering the neutral position and it can indeed be a malfunction in the gear selector of the gearbox. It needs to be checked several times.
