I am a new 2013 C4 C4 1.6hdi owner. I recently had a scenario where my engine was running and I was unable to put the automatic gear box in Drive or reverse. I switched the engine and returned 3 hrs later and all worked again.Has any forum member come across a similar issue with a C4 automatic?

Is yours full automatic or the piloted manual (EGS)?

If EGS, it could be low actuator fluid or dirty connector on the gearbox.

if you could not take it out of "P", there is a solenoid that release the gear shift lever when the brake pedal is pressed. when pressing teh brake pedal on :P: position, you can hear the clicking sound. this could be the issue.
