So I have had problems with my KIA Soul 2011 1.6 CRDI Automatic for a few months now, and I cant take it to another garage due to the lock-down. (Taken to 2 garages already, each one has said that the gear box is in limp mode, but neither garage mechanics could diagnose or isolate the problem, both suggested to take it to a genuine KIA dealer garage)

Basically these are the symptoms I'm having

Speedometer doesn't work (including no mileage recordings either on trip a/b or even adding to car total mileage)
ESP (Electronic Stability Program) indicator remains ON.
Gearbox doesn't change gear, I think it has stuck in 2nd gear. ( I can change from Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive)
Going into Reverse gives a big CLUNK
Cannot enter Manual Gear override

That's it basically

Please help.
