Auto Gearbox Sensor needs changing, but where do i buy it?
My mech says the check gearbox light, coupled with the annoying slowing down of movement is all caused by the gearbox sensor that needs to be changed. Any ideas on a store near E17 where i can buy this part? Also service part for this 1996 Saab 900s please.

didnt specify vehicle --generic answer--until repair is made the vehicle will show engine light and have codes --if gearbox is problem for limp mode /until repairs are made or gearbox replaced you will be in limp mode --and as to sensor find out what one it was --start problem may show back up if sensor was problem --and GET a 3rd opinion you have 2 mechanics with different opinions on your problem and i guess they are reading your trouble codes differently
Check engine lights report faults in engine AND gear box(auto). If you have changed from an auto to manual gear box then the sensor system for the gearbox is recording a massive fault with the gearbox that you have to check out. Talk wit an accredited auto electrician as to how to neutralise the system so that the light only checks out the engine.
I am not familiar with the Audi 2004 TT, but offer the following suggestion:-
If the vehicle has a gearbox separate from the engine, try using a lighter grade of gearbox oil -from my experience with Alfa's, Valvoline Transgear 75W/85 works well in slow synchro gearboxes.
(PS... Learn to double shuffle when changing back to second - then your syncro will last forever).
Hello. I had the same problem when the Check Gearbox light came on, it would be very sluggish. It turned out to be a small sensor in the transmission that lets the car know what gear it is in. It started to go out slowly and only sometimes would send the information.
u will find it hard to buy a used auto box to fit this car, and remember u will have to change the gearbox mounts fit a different pedal box and modify where the gear selector mounts for a manual gearbox conversion. to much hassle for such little gain better off buying another car
