something wierd with the brake light or something.
I see that problem posted time and time again on the RN and other BBs. Also do a search at pirate4x4.com. But be careful.. they are a tough bunch there and flame everyone if you post without searching first.
Hi all, your gear box sounds goosed, its a trip to the Auto specialists.
Have said that it may only be a valve thats stuck or at worst the internal clutch plates need attention. Sorry for the negative, Ive just paid around £600 for my Auto box sorting so best of luck,try a few web sites and e-mails to some of the reconditioners in uk?

Just a couple to be going on with, BAZZ.
Duckslayer...sounds like the 2 steel seals on the "A" clutch shaft has or are failing. This is a very common problem with the ZF 4HP22 transmission, and in fact I bought my RR with a bad transmission (only had reverse). I bought a Master rebuild kit for about $200 and rebuilt it myself...it was not too hard, I just took my time.
Dooley...1st...Check your fluid level. However, I would probably just drain it now, and replace the filter. Look at the fluid...if it's dark, smells burnt, or if there is alot of fine metallic debris (sludge) in the pan then I would suspect your transmission is on it's way out. You could baby it along...but it won't last forever.
You could also take it in to have it flushed...look for a shop that uses BG products. If you do have it flushed insist on having them drop the pan and replacing the filter after it's been flushed.
Be warned though...either of these scenarios may or may not hasten your transmissions demise...just a simple fact when you change the status quo.
Don't forget - to replace the filter on these you have to remove the crossmember to drop the pan. Hopefully yours has been serviced before so the crossmember isn't fused to the frame. Don't be surprised if you see giant rust holes behind it on the rails when you remove it if your car is otherwise rusty. Mine slid out nicely when I did my transmission and had only some scale behind it, little wire brushing and primer/paint and all is good.
