Poor Earth Lead
Wet AMT Gearbox Controller
Car Dragged In Gear
After A Crash
Snapped Clutch Actuator Spiral Gear
Corroded Clutch Actuator Connections
Damaged Wiring

Blown Fuse

It seems it is possible for the battery to be too weak to move the gear motor fully.
As the gears attempt to move and fail, the error code is bought up.
