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
Number10057626
NHTSA Item NumberSGI14-47
Date2015-06-15
SummaryLand 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?

Hello Tweeter1401
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 ?

thanks !

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

Hi, my evoque has the gearbox fault also. The car will reverse but won’t drive. If I put it in drive, it makes a squealing noise. Any advice welcome. Second time in a month it has happened. The garage said they reset it on a machine last time then it worked??

Finally fixed my Evoque. Oh yeah.
How? I have the 2014 Evoque with Gearbox fault message. Wont go out of park. Unless I let my car sit for awhile and try to restart it will it be gone and shift. I don't have the little Aux battery next to the fuse box. Did you figure something else out? Please give me advise

Sorry took me so long to respond. My Evoque indicated a Transmission Fault Error on the dash, and at the same time the turbo charger started to sound like if the manifold had a leak. Eventually I drove it to the dealer to get it checked and so here in short, is what the dealer said.
Check engine lamp is on.
Multiple Transmission faults, fluid burnt, metal shavings. Trans replacement recommended.
Turbo Charger: Under boost condition, no power. Turbo replacement recommended.
Oil leak, excessive oil leak in engine area.
Diagnosis cost: $292.50 (Discounted from $390.)

Recommended on 12/31/2019:
Turbo Charger: $1,835.
Misc Parts (listed in the estimate): $317. Approx.
Transmission Replacement: $5,647.
Misc Parts (listed in the estimate): $790. Approx.
Total w labor: $14,157.

5 years ago I bought a salvaged 2011 Mini Cooper S from a place in Sun Valley CA. next to a Land Rover junkyard that eventually found a donor car with 12k miles about a week after I contacted them. 2 days later the job was done.

Cost:
Transmission: $2,000.
Filter/Fluid and Transmission reprogramming: (included)
Turbo Charger: $1,000.
Labor: $2,000.
Engine Oil/Filter Change: $91.
Aux. Battery: $91.
Total: $5,200. w 1 year/12k miles warranty on Trans and Turbo.

Plus, I did these other items:
Replaced High Pressure Fuel Pump
Replaced Spark Plugs
Battery
for an additional $2,000.

I put a couple of thousand miles on the car and it's running great so far.

By the way, I don't believe it possible that you don't have an auxiliary battery.

I do have a small aux battery under the hood, just not where the glove box is. So your error said transmission fault error, mine is Gearbox Fault. I can only pray its different. Thanks for your reply!

Yes, I think that that is the only Aux battery. I don't think there's another one inside the car. Hope your fix is simple.

I just went through this issue so I hope this may help.

Gearbox Fault after a traction reduced and not coming out of park (after shutting down the car) is a sign of the Rear Diff going out. Traction reduced is a sign it is coming and will before too long.

I had the same issue with a Gearbox Fault and you could not take it out of park. Let it sit and you could drive it again like nothing happened. Replaced the rear diff and problems were solved (much other troubleshooting involved from the aux battery to the new shift controls after the brake light switch being first). You can replicate the issue by losing traction all the way around the vehicle. Just drive her like she wants and as sideways as she can go.

A gearbox fault and a transmission fault are a good bit different, 3K vs 6K unless you do your own work. If you are lucky you had the battery issue but that is easy to test and cheap to replace.

You can have the rear diff replaced or rebuild it but I just went with a new one (had a lot of miles on mine).
