The Hazard!

Aston Martin has found a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety on a range of DB9 vehicles manufactured between the dates of December 2007 to January 2017, which have the 6-Speed Touchtronic II Automatic Transmission. The cause of the problem is a communication error between the Engine Control Module (ECM) software and the Transmission Control Module (TCM). This can cause the transmission park pawl to be held out. When the transmission park pawl is held out, this can let the vehicle to roll away from its parked position.
