    Default Faulty gear lever switch in 2010 C4GP EGS

    Hi Folks,

    Advertisement


    I've had the dreaded "Gearbox Fault" service error come up on my 2010 C4GP EGS but thankfully the mechanic tells me it's just the switch on the gear stick that is the problem (according to error code). The mechanic reset the fault as the error hadn't happened for a few weeks and suggested it may have sorted itself out but the error has returned. Any ideas of what part/process is required to replace it and where a part may be sourced? There doesn't seem to be anything online about the Picasso that I can find and no Haynes manual. I'm keen to do it myself rather than make another trip back to the mechanic if it's relatively simple.

    Thanks.

    there is an english forum where the more common faults are discussed at length - 'C4 users'?

    Yeah, I've been through there and haven't found any reference to this fault and there doesn't appear to be anything in their archives regarding it. Also, figured I might get better options for sourcing parts locally here.

    THanks

    above should - if you set up an identity - get you into the PSA database; build-sheets, spare-parts exploded diagrams, etc., as well as - for a fee - technical documentation.
    I haven't gone that far myself, but what can be accessed gratis is very useful.

    What was the fault code you had?

    Awesome stuff fnqvmuch. Thanks.

    dmccurtayne - error on the screen was "Gearbox Fault". Mechanic who did last service said it was something about the switch on the gearstick - which fits with the behaviour now that the error has come back as it sometimes fails to register that the stick has moved and you have to flip it back and forth a few times to get it to change between R, P, A & M.

    You need to know what the code was to narrow the fault down properly

    I thought the gear change stick fault was caused because there wasn't enough dielectric grease on the connection plug or enough on the contacts of the lever.

    Those part numbers might be wrong if you have a P rather than N(START) as on my EGS

    It's an N(START) one
