I have recently had increasing problems with the gears not changing, not starting, stalling at lights etc, with the transmission warning light on.
The only info I could find was a suggestion that the gear change actuators may be seizing, so I removed & stripped these. There was nothing wrong with them, but on refitting them the fault had worsened to the point that the car would not turn over just the warning light on all the time.
The fault was a broken data link wire inside the conduit going down the front of the gearbox at the point where it separates to the two actuators and the ECU/clutch pack.
A cheap and easy fix once I found it, certainly worth looking for if you have gear problems on these cars.
I hope this will be of help to others.
