Default E280cdi 2006 Gear Change Problem

Hi All, today I experienced a problem, I had to accelerate hard to avoid an accident, but when the automatic gear box dropped down a gear the car juddered and I had to back off the trottle, the car then woundn't change gear but also woundn't pick up speed, I had to pull over and restart the car, all was then back to normal.

Any ideas what this maybe?

Could be the start of the electric plate going down, might be a idea to get the fault codes read, see if it has stored something.......

Could this be a 'KID' mode problem?
Not seen one doing this as yet, but have heard it is becoming an issue - something to do with the TC external control?
Apparently they only do it in 'E' and are OK in 'S'.
