Check your MAF sensor, if it's poor it will cause the gearbox to malfunction. Don't forget the gearbox needs information from MAF to function effectively.

The aftermarket bluetooth accessory u installed might be conflicting with the gearbox module. Yes there is a TSB on that! U may try to remove it and see if it help.

Last but not the least plug a scanner on the gearbox module and see if there is a fault code.
I'm hoping to get ATF replaced over the weekend; I'm unable to find any information (service manual etc) on my car. I couldn't even find a dipstick to check the level. Before I bough the car they have replaced MAF because it was giving check engine light when i took it for a spin. I'm sure they wouldnt buy new one (stealership), they probably got second hand MAF. But if MAF caused this wouldnt it cause my obd scanner to show fault?
The reason I bough obd scaner was the gear box playing up so I dont think it would cause any issues.

Car has done just over 50k km which I dont think is much.
