    Hi All,

    I’ve been having an issue where my F430 is throwing up the Gearbox Light on the dash and not being able to go past 2nd. Usually happens whilst driving after the first 10-15mins or so … ( initially I thought it was the engine bay latch not connecting properly but that’s fine )

    Error codes/messages came back with Engagement Potentiometer.

    My questions, if anyone is able to help :

    1. Anyone else experienced this issue?
    2. If so, did the potentiometers being replaced fix it ( I’ve read slot of conflicting stories )
    3. Anyone know a specialist with an SD3 to re-learn in the South East / Surrey area ? ( as I believe this is needed if I replace the. Engagement potentiometers )

    Any and all info would be highly appreciated

    Thanks !!

    Your biggest problem is going to be finding a set of potentiometers (part #248095). They have been NLA for a long time...

    Your absolutely right! This was the diagnosed problem by the specialist with an SD3, and now the impossible hunt for a set of potentiometers.
    Thanks for the reply
