Hi,

I have just bought a 2000 megane automatic and it seems to be staying in the same gear all the time. There is a light on next to the gear - don't know what this means.

I thought the gearbox fluid might be low but can't find where to check it.

Can anyone help please!

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

If it was a purchase from a dealer,I'd get it back to them and get them to sort it.If it was a private sale,then I suspect you are faced with an expensive repair.

If your anywhere in the South or South West,try TES in Westbury,Wiltshire.If you need further details,then I'll post them here.

It sounds like there is a problem with the electronic solenoids inside the gearbox,and this can be expensive to repair.:(

EDIT.Just a thought,but you are putting it into drive and not '1' aren't you?.Sorry if this sounds obvious,but I had to ask.:eek:

Winter traction botton!

I had same model you will find another button on the gear stick lower down I think it might have been pressed by mistake or the button that is lit up you might have to press that.Anyway it`s one of them, it`s what you use in the winter when you are trying to slowly drive across ice.
