Solenoid issue?

Hi all, today my car suddenly showed gearbox warning light and only the 1/3/5/R gears are working. You guys reckon this is a solenoid issue? Any point of going to the dealer or might as well straight go to independent and have them fix. Car is MY09 with Cobb reflash of the ecu and tranny.

Personally I'd firstly pull the code and see what the exact fault is, then I'd probably head to my local indy to simply drop the oil pan and examine the valve chest, if it's something bigger discovered at that point you can still decide to go HPC route and your only down small bucks with the Indy examination, plus you'll have a better understanding of the problem which may give you some leverage with the HPC.

No probs mate , hopefully it's only a solenoid that's stuck, to be fair most of the time it's a small issue with the gearboxes unless the circlips fail which probably wouldn't leave you with limp mode and more likely leave you stranded with a casing full of bits, there's people better placed to know the exact nature of the failure and a good Indy will know pretty quickly. Hope your back up and running very soon

P073X would show up It could be P0731,P0732,P0737. Mine did it after reinstalling the valvebody wrong after relining it it never showed up anymore.

sorry to hear this.

sounds like Shift Fork 'A' Position Circuit

i think first port of call should be Visscher Nissan HPC. Other modified GT-R which have seen oem gearbox parts fail have been looked after but based on case by case. If no joy Richard @ Total Car concept Holland are able to repair

Ok thanks for your answer Ben, yep figured the same. Was actually thinking to first go to tcc but they are closed till next year. Is this something Visscher will repair or will they simply want to replace the box

Am I correct in saying Nissan will still need a valid warranty on the car to replace the box ? Or will they replace such failure regardless?

Without having a look yet Nissan suspects solenoid. They will have the car tomorrow. Normally should be replaced under warrantee but if not TCC can sort for a lot less then new gearbox so not freaking out quite yet.

Just got message from my HPC, new gear box on the way. Not a solenoid issue but indeed some issues with shift fork as Ben said. If I understand correctly in US they at last started repairing gearboxes in stead of the crazy replacement policy. But not unhappy with a new box and all the talk about warranty denials is as proven many times indeed unfunded. Nissan do take care of their customers and I'm very happy with the service I get from my HPC.

Sure am. Look, I wouldn't have bought a new gear box thats for sure. Local tuner could have fixed for very little. But the pain of organizing transport etc just a pain. This is a lot easier, new gear box can't be a bad thing and replacement car should be part of dealers cost now too. So yes, me happy!
