You put the box in drive and reverse is shown as selected and the car reverses?

What guide did you follow for the rebuild?

What parts did you change for the rebuild?

Why did the box need a rebuild?

Did the fault appear directly after the rebuild or some time after?

Are any faults showing in LEXIA?

It just shows a line constantly and wherever gearstick is its always in reverse
I did not follow a guide as I have done many boxes in past.
It was not selecting 1st and 2nd gears originally due to something being broken inside box
It appeared straight after rebuild and no my fault finder is not showing any gears

So it has something to do with the way it was reassembled.

Maybe the gear selector is not connected correctly to the gear box?

I would expect an error from the auto box ECU, which is odd.

Other than that, you probably know more about the AL4 than me with all those rebuilds under your belt :)
