VWoA recently sent us the letters on a car they took back! However, when I called to straighten it all out, VWCS couldn't find us, nor the car... they said the car's VIN didn't exist, and couldn't figure it out.....

Just call or email vw customer care. My VIN isn't included on the list posted on the other page, but customer care confirmed I was scheduled to get my mechatronic unit replaced and the letter would be coming soon.
Not sure how much I believe that since the original letter I received was to inform me of the diagnostic tool they would have ready in 'early spring 2010'
The top of the thread says something about what to do if you have a 2006 but I've searched through the thread and I don't see much hope.
I have a 2006 Audi A3 with the "DSG Flashing PRNDS of death" problem. While driving the indicator will start flashing and it will be stuck in a gear. It does not correct itself until I turn the car off and start it back up. I've started putting it in neutral while rolling down the road and restarting the car. It has 97k miles.
I took it to the dealer but they want me to pay for 3 hours of digging into the transmission just to diagnose the problem. However I'll take it to an independent Audi mechanic I use rather than paying the dealer.
Can anyone tell me for sure what will need to be done? If it's the temp sensor is it possibly a DIY job?
Anybody have guidance on how to raise the issue so that Audi takes care of it?
Thanks for any help. This forum was awesome 10 years ago when I bought a new Passat, lowered it, chipped it, etc.
Could someone help me with the technical details of what might need to be repaired on my car? I'm assuming that Audi will not stand behind my problem, even though it is a safety issue, and is the same problem that they have acknowledged is a problem in cars just a few months newer than mine. Which also means I've probably bought my last Audi/VW. Anyway enough ranting, on to my question...
Can someone tell me what could be fixed to repair the flashing PRNDS problem? I would like to bring some type of information to my independent Audi mechanic. I would prefer not to work with the dealer.
I have seen posts about a temp sensor or mechatronics unit. Any idea if it is one of these? If so can you point me to part numbers?
Thanks for any advice.
The reason for the question is, I just bought a used 08 .:R32 and the part has been ordered for the DSG repair. The car has 39000 and is almost ready for the 40000 DSG service. VW service locally said if they do both at the same time I will save about $80 on the $316.00 service.
Mine isn't either! I just called Audi Customer Care and my VIN isn't in the range recalled. I have an early build '07, so that's probably why. I think my transmission is showing signs of impending doom and I am just outside the warranty! ugh...My 07 A3 isnt covered under the 100k warrenty
so today in a McD's parking lot I almost hit another car: revs went up while breaking, car was jerking and only then it finally come to the full stop.
went to my favorite forum to see if anybody has the same issue - WOW! Recall
my car is '07 gti, that was made on 11/06....
gonna call VWofA today and check it out
Old thread, but apparently quite a common problem with the DSG. Any idea if my '11 CC 2.0T DSG would be covered under this VAG Mechtronics unit replacement process? Build date shows as mid 2010.
My problem is going to be getting them to be able to reproduce it, as it's intermittent. Happens hot or cold, but only in regular D / Auto mode when using a light foot from a stop. Put it in manual mode and no issue (I don't bother with S mode at all). Use a heavy foot, no issue. While it's infrequent, it's damned annoying when trying to drive smoothly from a stop with gas mileage in mind.
Any feedback or suggestions greatly appreciated - TIA!!
