Auto Gearbox problem? (3.0 v6 DCi)

Hello all. 

I'm currently looking for a Vel Satis, and have found one locally at a bargain of just £400, although it does need some work. 

 

Most notably the automatic gearbox has a problem.

 

The gearbox will shift through the gears manually no problem and goes through reverse all the way to 5th gear with no issue.

However it will not auto shift and must be done manually. the car simply does not change out of first if driven in fully auto.

 

Is this a common problem? Or does anyone have any idea what the problem may be?

 

Many thanks

 

Steve.

Mine does exactly the same. I bought it 3 years ago and have covered 20k miles always driving it in manual. It's always nagging my mind but hasn't seemed to affect it. I'd love to get it fixed though as it's the only thing on the car not working properly. Please post an update if you have any joy Laugh

Word of warning, this symptom happened to my new (for me!) car – 67k on clock – and three days later I'm now stuck in 4th gear… !
