Automatic Light on Dashboard coming on


This is my first post - I hope you guys can calm me down a little!

I have a 2000 Megane 1.6 Sport Alize Auto and in the past two weeks, the automatic light has come on three times when randomly starting the car and the car won't go beyond 1st gear when set to 'D'.

I had only driven up the road the first time it happened, so I headed back and called the AA. Sods law dictated that when they started the car, all was fine. I took it to a Renault garage for a diagnostic check and they couldn't find any faults.

It's happened twice since then, the latest time being this evening. On both times, I wasn't able to leave the car where it was so I put it in 2nd and drove home. On getting home, if I turned the car off and on again, the light had gone out and the car sounded normal.

Does anyone have any idea of what this problem could be?
I don't know if it's related, but a few times the car has struggled to start first go and both problems seem to have happened at roughly the same time.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Meg. x
