I got in the truck and started it one day and “Gearbox Fault” popped up. I couldn’t shift out of park. I restarted it and it went away. It has happened a few more times, some times while driving. The message pops up and the car seems to be in 3rd gear only. If I turn off and restart or clear codes, it goes away. It’s been happening very sporadically, but becoming more prevalent lately. I’ve also noticed that some times when it happens, the illuminated “D” on the dash will flash on and off.
My first thought was battery/alternator. I had the alternator checked and was told it’s good. I put in a new battery. To no avail. My Indy swears it’s the gear shifter at the console. I feel he’s guessing. I’ll source a used one, but don’t want to react to guessing.
Going through all of the systems, I’ve found numerous codes. This keeps me thinking current. Maybe the alternator check was inaccurate.
Below are the codes that are there now.
I’ve also read where older models had similar issues when the brake light switch at the pedal gets wonky.
Im open to any suggestions any of you may care to share and I thank you in advance

Try getting a new battery. Failing batteries (low voltage) on RRs always show multiple random errors. Mine was the same - cured with a new battery.

Thanks Gyre8, I returned the 2 week old battery and got another one. Duralast Platinum (H8). Still doing it.
Anyone else have any input?
Come on, don't be shy.

Re: “Gearbox Fault” 2010 L322 HSE

Hello DaveCap,

My 2013 RR Sport just started popping up "Gear Box Fault" message and seems like you had gone through this issue recently. Any suggestion and how much it cost a new shifter mechanism?

Appreciate and any suggestons.

As it turns out, it was not the shifter in my case. The first obvious things to check is your fluid level. Then your battery and your alternator. voltage issues can often trigger this fault. For starters, have you hooked up a scanner to get the specific codes?
How many miles on her? do you know if it has the original fluid in her?
Is the problem more prevalent when shes hot or cold?
Mine was a long journey to get sorted out. You can PM me a number and I can give you a call to explain all I did.
