Alfa Romeo 166 3.0 Gearbox Range Switch

About a week ago my automatic gearbox start misbehaving and has been getting steadily worse.

first of all if it was difficult to find drive and reverse. i could move the gearlever but it just wouldn't sit in the gear i wanted.

then it started getting into drive more regularly but i have almost completely lost reverse.

i'm pretty sure it's not a mechanical fault as the gearbox was replaced (at great expenses) in July 2007. i have taken it to my local AR serving agent and he has plugged his computer into the car and told me it is a faulty 'range switch' - this apparently tells the gearbox what gear it should be in.

i'm not overly technical so before i pay out another sizable amount of money to get my car back on the road, i just wanted to check with anyone out there who can verify the diagnosis or who has experienced a similar problem.

it's a year 2000 model, 3.0litre automatic.

please help!
