Customer Question

Hi. I have a DAF LF45 AS Tronic gearbox. Today in the part of the display that shows what gear I am in a symbol has come up - a small circle surrounded by small square brackets. At the same time, the gearbox is changing from 6th to 4th without going through 5th when I am going downhill resulting in a lot of revving as it shouldn't be in 4th. Any ideas welcome as I can't find anything in the manual. Thank.s
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any fluid leaks lately?
Customer: It's not a car. It's a DAF LF45 which is a 7.5 ton lorry. It's done 150,000 miles
JA: What is the make/model/year of your car?
Customer: DAF LF45 2011/12. It is not a car!
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I haven't tried anything.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No
