What electronic gearbox ? there will iether be a manual transmission ( thats where you can change gear using a clutch, thats the extra pedal on the left) or you have an automatic transmission( thats where you have a lever thats allows you to put it into R, D etc and DOES NOT have an extra peda) these gearboxes are not electronic, they are driven by oil pressure. What will you do when you find the ........ gearbox ?
Suggests a problem with the Automatic Gear box ECU, or X/Y selector switch. Can also be water in the connector as it joins the gearbox, or someone's knocked the ECU which is under the passenger seat (RHD). Sometimes this can be cleared by stopping, turning off the ignition, and starting again and it's fine. It's alerting you that it is in 'Limp Home' mode (3)
if it is an auto there is a dipstick with a red top in the left had rear of engine compartment( on a righthand drive model) which will tell you the level the warning lights are on almost permenantly on most discos they are nortorious for reading the wrong temperature I bet theres nothing wrong with the tranny temp just a dodgy sender if you want to drain the oils there is a drain plug under gearbox and a level plug on the side it is easier to fill from dipstick until fluid comes out level plug
simple the oil seal between the transfer gearbox and the main gearbox has gone the oil is flowing through from transfer box there is a level plug on the side of the transfer box I bet if you check there is very little oil in the transfer box get it sorted before the transfer box siezes up through lack of oil
No need for a diagram, to drain the oil, there's a drain plug on the bottom of the transfer box, under the handbrake drum. To fill, the fill plug is about in line with the centre of the handbrake drum and to the left. I think both plugs are 1/2" square. Fill to overflow with Texaco Multi-Gear 75W/90R. Takes about 2L or so.
If you start it, and drop it into 1 does it move? If so, sounds like the sprag clutch (iirc) has gone - this is the clutch that allows you to freewheel at lights and what not. Common problem on the Auto gearboxes. Will need a rebuild I'm afraid.
