My problem was that I couldn't do a full throttle shift at over 5k revs. The next gear number would flash, and the engine would die until it dropped to 2k. It would then shift up to the next gear and pick up speed again.

It was ok if I lifted off the throttle when I pulled the paddle at up to 7k.

The strange thing was that there were no codes logged. The only indication of a fault was if you went through the software re adaptation stage, when 'shift pattern too large' was logged.

The cure was a new box. This was only found to be the problem after replacing all sensors, hydro pump, actuators and smg software.
