There are quite a few transmission related posts here already. If this is a repeat I apologize. I did a search and couldn’t find a similar problem. While reading, it does seem that a few of you are transmission “go-to” guys so I hope you can help.

We have a 2006 Rang Rover, great truck for many years. We developed some transmission issues and decided to get a used “tested” transmission. The install went great with no real issues. I thought I was in the home stretch when I filled it up with ZF fluid.

When I start it up I get a “Limited Gears” message and a “U3000” fault when I hook up my OBDII. The truck will not shift out of park.

I can disconnect the shift cable and manually shift through the gears at the input shaft.

I looked up the fault and it seems to be a generic computer-not talking to each other fault.

Do I have to get the truck re-programmed to accept a non-original transmission? Or am I missing something obvious?

Yes, the new Mechatronic unit/transmission controller has to be coded to the vehicle. Alternatively, you can swap the old electronic module to the new valve body (hydraulic module).

Thanks for the advice! After deliberating over the weekend (actually I was working double shifts all weekend), I set to work taking the ECU out of the transmission I took out of the truck. After removing the Valve Body I figured out how to get the ECU out.

Moving onto the new (used) transmission that I already put into the truck I was able to do the same. I then did the switch-putting the old ECU into the new (used) Valve Body.

I re-installed the assembly into the truck.

Serviced it up and what do you know, no faults, drives great (so-far).

Thanks for the help!
