Autobox goes in to safe mode

Got a 3 litre laguna baccara, and the auto box after a mile or so of driving drops down a gear or two then moves into safe mode! Any ideas?

Hi and a very warm welcome to the forums.

This does seem to be a common problem on the Renault auto boxes.
Here is one post that may help. If not just type safe mode into the search box on the home page and go from there.

Hope this helps, kind regards Oily.

Hi & welcome to the forum.

If the box goes into safe mode it indicates a problem. Either ATF levels or in a sensor unit or perhaps the box itself. Check the ATF, make sure levels are good and that the ATF is a clean reddish colour that does not smell burnt. if no joy may need to get it on a diagnostic computer which should, with luck, pinpoint where problem lies.

Is your battery in good condition. My auto suffered due to the battery not charging and it wasn't getting enough power supply.
