my dads el wagon gearbox just done this.

It is in limp mode.

It can be a number of things wrong with it to cause it to go into limp.

We found that it was my dads oil pressure switch was dead so we replaced that and now its all good.

Worth checking the trans connector around the back of the engine - they often have issues (its round).
