I hope its something that simple, I thought with that mileage battery would still be OK thanks for that I'll get it changed.

I've had the battery go flat in mine twice and have since changed it. I can confirm that when you first jump start the car and get the engine going, it still won't shift into R or D until a certain amount of charge had built up in the battery.... had me worried at first since the engine was running but then I still could not move the car to take it for a drive to charge the battery right up.

It's not really surprising that the EDC semi auto box misbehaves with battery problems. It is computer controlled so needs a reliable electrical source
