I've checked the trans fluid a couple of weeks ago and I flushed out the old stuff and put in new fluid if I got a transmission service could test fix the problem?

You'll need to pull the fault codes from the TCM - which sits near the handbrake.
Could be dirty transmission plugs as well.

i have also been told a dirty earth on the engine-battery can cause this? so check all the above first and also disconnect the battery and reset the ecu?
