2014 Evoque Gearbox Fault
I bought my 2014 Evoque last year in May of 2016. I have had multiple issues with a message "Gearbox Fault" when going start it over the last year. I brought it into the dealership and they kept if for 1 week and could not figure it out. They gave me my car back. It had done it sporadically through December and then stopped. I have called multiple times to the dealer and they keep on saying there is no problem. It seems that it takes 45mins to 1 hours for the car to reset and then its back to normal. I have started traveling more, and I will go to start the car and it is stuck in park and will not let you switch to "D" Gear or anything. I called the dealer and now they are saying that it is out of warranty and that i could bring it in for diagnostics.
Ive done a lot of research over the months, and it looks like its a known problem, but no definite fix. It comes down to this:
POWER TRAIN : AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
|NHTSA Item Number
||Land rover: 2014-2015 model year range rover evoque: 9 speed automatic transmission calibration, poor transmission, warning message, lack of power, unable to select drive or reverse when the vehicle is in park. *lj
Curious if any one has had the Gearbox Fault issue and described just like mine. Any help is greatly appreciated since this is my first car in the Range Rover family. Any way to fix this or am I SOL?

I have exactly the same issue on my automatic 9 shift 2014 Range Rover Evoque (120 000 kilometer)
Land Rover diagnose an issue with a module close to the gearbox. And ask for 3500 to repair !
Did you solve this issue ? how ?
Is it a well known issue ?

I have the same issue.
All my lengthy research points to the " Auxiliary Battery " located beside passenger footwell fusebox - underneath glove box.
It is a small Battery - Power Sonic PS-1212 12 Volt 1.2 Amp.
on my 2015 Canada model Evoque - unfortunately - at the same location is no such module....with that battery.
I have the battery at home already but i still have not managed to find that module on the place everyone else is describing
on this you tube video can see where it is located on a left hand drive. ( like mine ) - On miy vehicle however on the same location is no module....
change that battery if you can locate it on the same location as on the video.
Write in google " Evoque auxiliary battery " - lots of ebay posts will show up.
hope it helps.
But i need help with mine still to locate that freaking module on mine ... dont know where it is
