Hope someone can help!
Gearbox goes into drive but seems to be stuck in low gear, won't change gear manually, digital readout stays in 'D'. Problem has got worse now, did clear with ignition switched off then on again, but now stays stuck in low gear.
Seems to give a harsh jerk when changing into reverse and needs a good prod on pedal to make it move backwards, used to creep backwards on tickover!
Thanks for any help!

Problem solved, thanks to Prestige Car Service. Spoke to Olly on phone and he diagnosed problem, took car to him and Star confirmed problem (electrical plate inside gearbox). part was sorced from MB and fitted straight away. Car now changes gear as it should, smooth and sweet. Thanks Olly and team, another satisfied customer.
