Very hard to say without seeing fault codes, but the system consists of a EGS control unit, transmission, mechantronic unit, wiring harness and the PT-can. Haven't heard of this happening before, if you wish to put the car into neutral, make sure the park brake is on when you release the trans, there should be instructions in the booklet with great illustrations. Its a lever on the pass. side footwell on a RHD car lol
