Its usually the Control unit in the gearbox that fails, £1065 + vat for the part and labour to fit, plus oil and time on star.

Just got back from the garage and the only fault he could find was a faulty ignition switch, changed for £10.10 + labour and vat. Fingers crossed that is the end of my problems.
