U1208 means there is fault in the information sent by the engine management ECU over the CAN network - the Value received is incorrect.

It means there is either detection of an uncertain engine torque or detection of an invalid accelerator pedal position. You need to get a further diagnosis undertaken at your dealer as this likely means because there is a problem with the engine speed information from the engine ECU the gearbox ECU is not playing ball and allowing gear selection.
