To be honest it really needs diagnosing, preferably with Lexia to see what the issues are. Then pop up any fault codes you get here.

If you don't have a Lexia kit yourself, take a look at the member list of owners with kits that may be able to help:

At the end of the list is a link to a Google Map, showing the members' geographic locations and details. Just use the Private Message or Email links on the member's profile to contact anyone suitable.

Bear in mind, although we update the list as often as we can, not all members are active on the Forum all the time, so it may take a while for a reply - and please remember current lockdown restrictions may make this difficult at present.

Auto or manual?
If auto are the brake lights working as they should & is it showing the gearbox in neutral or park?
Check all the fuses in the under bonnet fusebox. This fault is very often a blown fuse.
