My QP did this about 2 years ago including a little - for the gear selection. The car would start but not select a gear. The dealer checked it and said it needed the instruments changing which they did under warranty. It did the same thing about 1 month back, exactly the same so I guess not as they diagnosed. I disconnected the battery and it been OK ever since.I got a similar call the other day, It may be the instrument cluster failing.
