      So I pulled the codes and this is what came up,
      00638 Engine/transmission electrical connection 03-10 No signal intermittent
      00545 Engine/transmission electrical connection 31-00 open or short.
      Any ideas......Thanks

      Check/replace the solenoid wiring harness...
      Can anyone let me know the "trick" to unlocking the locking ring for the harness? I tried squeezing two sides of it but it just doesn't seem to budge!

      I'm getting a code for the #7 Solenoid. I'm new to automatics and find this post VERY informative. I'm gonna try testing the resistance of the #1&#10 pins and see if I have a short. I hit a bump when it was okay for a while, and the bump kicked limp mode back in... Probably a messed up ribbon?

    6. 10-21-2008 11:02 AM #56
      broken ribbon, bad connector connection (main to internal), tcu, or something else. start with the basics. check codes, connections, and resistance. go from there. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      easiest way to remove the wire harness is to use a butter knive - which is wider than a flathead screwdriver, put the knife between the valve body and the plug - so in essance the knife lays on top of the wire, and then slightly angle the knive toward to plug - and the plug will just jump out. One at the time. Easy as slicing pie. I have done it more that 15 times sofar without damaging the wire. Valve bodies are pieces of crap. Difficult to isolate the problem.

      this post is awesome, & the valve body teardown is too. i have the harness, & the printed circuit foil ordered. i should have it by the end of the week. i have'nt read the whole post yet, but thanks ahead of time. they told me at the dealer, the harness, & the pc foil come in two parts. mine was soldered,(the damaged one) but the tech said it should plug together.

      Where should I start? Power/Ground? Where are their locations?

      i have a 2001 bettle, i am replacing the same parts as in this post. when i'm done with the repair, will i be able to reset the 01M transmission, by turning on the key, holding the gas pedal to the floor for 5 secs. ? or, will i have to have software, or take to someone that does?

      I am sorry to hear that you feel people do not appreciate posts here. I have printed many of the posts and am assembling my own version of the Vortex Bentley. Yes, I do have the Bentley manual also, but I so often often find that the posts here are much more detailed and actually done by mechanics. I haven't needed the DIY cleaning of the valve body yet, but I truely appreciate having the info if and when I do. Many on this site have helped me and that is what keeps my VW running. Here is my thank you to all for their time and efforts to create their technical posts.

      This Post is awesome ....... Just what I was looking For. I wanted Pictures and good info and you have provided it. I'm about to tear into A 2001 Cabrio. I have rang out the Solenoids coils from the external connector and found EV-7 (N94) Pins 1 and 10 (spec 55 to 65 Ohms) ringing 291 ohms.... way out of spec. I have the Solenoid resistance spec I can email to anyone who is interested. I'm not a VW fan but I'm a fan of saving a few bucks for my daughter. Great info buddy and thanks so much for your effort and willingness to help others.

      Did you test out the resistance on the "suspected" solenoid?

      Could this be a faulty or loose connector? What came of the replacement cable?

      i check all the pins and the sensor temp is with 280k ohms, do you thing this could do the transmission to be in limp mode?, i have a golf 97, and only get third gear and reverse, somethimes reverse kills the engine, but with out the tmc i get fisrt and third and reverse with no problems at all

      do i need to change the wire harness first, and reset or reset and see whats going to happen? how do i reset manually ?

    19. 04-24-2009 11:23 PM #69
      reset before anything. tuen key on, press gas to floor for 15 sec, turn key off, release gas pedal, start car while touching nothing, let sit for 5 min, enjoy

      mmm... i did the reset but din't work, now i have codes p1613 (mill call up / short to b+), p0730 incorrect gear ratio, and p0440 evaporative emission system, any sugestion???

    21. 04-26-2009 03:23 PM #71
      is it ok to do the 096 reset anytime for really no reason other than to see if it changes any?

    22. 04-26-2009 05:10 PM #72
      yes.anytime is a good time. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      that sounds like an ecu code rather than a tcu code. u need to reset everything!! ecu and tcu, then try to pull codes.

      how to do the DCU reset procedure?
      i understand the TCU: key on, press and hold gas peddle > 15 seconds, turn off, release, start and drive

      unplug battery for 10 min or reset with vagcom.
