Cooper Autobox problem

Got a bit of a strange one. I have a 2009 Auto Cooper Clubman. This morning the display in the tacho that shows P,D,N and R kept flashing between DS (manual mode) and D. It also wouldn't change gear, so I had to use the paddle shifters. Interestingly this evening it drove fine in normal Auto mode but when I move the gearshift to the left to engage DS(manual mode) nothing happens and the display still shows D instead of DS. Any ideas? Is it worth disconnecting the battery to perhaps reset the gearbox control module or will this set the alarm off and/or upset any settings? TIA
