I've got a 2010 207 automatic which I've had for 4 years. In the new year the 'snow' symbol and 'sport' symbol came on and the gearbox went into 'limp-home' mode. The next day the car was fine. This happened three times. I took it to an independent automtaic gearbox specialist and his diagnostic tester said that it needed a new transmission switch, so he fitted a new one.

However, I still have the problem and his diagnostic tester still says that it needs a new transmission switch.

Has anybody come across this before??

Natrix , if you want to do a hard reset this is what you have to do .

Get on a flat road where you will not have to brake thru this procedure stop the car switch off ignition start the car and just put foot to the floor untill it changes in to 3 rd gear stop switch off ignition wait 5 min restart drive normally for 15 mins make sure you get it to go thru all gears before you stop again . this makes the car relearn the gearbox useage . you can only but try this and costs nothing but a bit of time but have had a few on here thank me for this advice which works for most people . if it does not work first time try it again

hope that will help you out

Did the specialist check the fluid level in the box?

Procedure here.
Hi Ian, I don't know if the automatic gearbox specialist checked the fluid level, but Jon who used the Planet software tried to assess the gearbox oil to see if it needed changing but my ECU software apparantly doesn't allow you to read it.

Hi....has anything been changed recently....ie..tyres
Hi Noddy, actually the rear tyres were changed as was the battery. The tyres were changed early December, I then had to go into hospital over Christmas. When I came out the battery needed changing and as I had stitches in my chest I didn't want to be lifting a battery and so got Halfords to do it. It was about a week afterwards that I started having gearbox problems.

With all the pallaver of going into hospital I had completley forgotten about the tyres. Could they have had an effect??

Hi...it may be the wiring from the switch....the reason i mention tyres was some cars are very sensitive to the rolling diameter(size) matching each wheel...so a brand new tyre and a very worn one on the same axle can throw faults with abs... etc yours being auto could cause probs...may be not but worth a check?

That handy link to checking the fluid talks about an oil wear counter triggering the snow light when it's too worn. I would get the fluid changed and the wear counter reset. It's nonsense to say box is sealed for life, you'll only have to look at the old fluid to realise it is contaminated and spent. Most auto box reconditioners recommend fluid changes at 24K.
I changed the fluid in the similar DPO transmission fitted to our Scenic at 30K intervals and it still functioned perfectly when I sold it with 120K.

My understanding is that the oil wear counter is only a feature of early AL4 transmissions. Later models do not have the facility, and Planet reports accordingly.

If that is the case with the OP's vehicle, the flashing symbols are doing so for another reason. The fact that Planet does report another reason suggests that that is the case.

Ianml is correct, As the car is 2010 manufacture, access was only possible through Diagbox. There was no facility to check switch values or live data from the gearbox.
It is possible to reset the oil counter but you can't see the reading for the oil counter.
Later gearboxes display the fault message on the central display. Eg oil service due.
The only codes readable were p1167, which is associated with a fault.
But not a fault in its own right. I suggested that as 3 weeks had passed since the last occurrence there were no stored codes to read. So i cleared the gearbox faults and I will read if there is a next occurrence.
I can not rule out the ECU is spiked from the battery change as the BSI had a 'f5ff' inductive of a poor BSI boot. this was reset too.
If the Fault occurs again I would recommend a recheck of the Oil level and the BSI and gearbox ecu to be Downloaded.
