Hi amir_arsalan_k2

Is 'Sport' or 'S' and a '*' or 'snow' symbol showing?

Is there the correct quantity of the right oil in the gear box, only use the special LT71141 type of oil for fully automatic boxes and the sensodrive takes the Total Transmission BV 75w80 Oil
Engine light is a fault detected, read with a cheap OBD2 reader from ebay or a much more useful (for autos) tool Diagbox or Lexia from ebay.

Snow light on means there is a fault detected, 0Km is probably connected to the gearbox fault.

If you have ABS system, you may have a fault with the ABS system to give 0Km and the gearbox fault.

If you do not have ABS, then your fault is probably going to be with the gearbox :(

You will need to read the error codes and do all the diagnostics with Lexia for this fault to identify what is causing it.

A fault with the speed sensor in the gearbox (if you don't have ABS) or its communication with the car.

This code would reveal more information if it was read with a lexia system (see the link above to lexia) because it can mean different things depending on what other equipment you have fitted and the lexia system can sort through that automatically and give you the right description.

But 'U' codes are network error codes, so the reason your speed sensor signal is not getting to the ECU could be due to a network fault (wiring/ECU) or the speed sensor could be sending rubbish signals over the network.


This is the speed sensor attached to the gearbox of a non ABS C3
C3 NON ABS SPEED SENSOR GEAR BOX
C3 NON ABS SPEED SENSOR GEAR BOX
and this is a link to the them on ebay but check its compatible with your car before buying it.

Use lexia not MaxiScan to diagnose ABS faults.

You may have an ABS fault that gives the speed and gearbox error because the road speed is supplied by the ABS for cars with ABS.

You need to fix the speed sensor fault to get the gearbox working. Read live data from the ABS system for road speed. Read faults in the gearbox ECU. Use the tool called Lexia or DIagbox to perform the tests.
