Your issue is going to be that a generic fault code reader won't read the more advanced constructor codes. You have a piloted manual gearbox and these are notoriously difficult to troubleshoot, having a large number of fault codes. You really aren't going to make progress on this unless you get it properly diagnosed with Diagbox. I can almost guarantee there will be faults logged, so you need to be able to provide those in order for some idea of the issue.

Have a look at our list of members who have offered Lexia / Peugeot Planet / Diagbox Diagnostics help if you haven't already seen it - link below:

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.
