ok so i got this auto TDI '01 Golf for very cheap. i couldn't turn it down despite the automatic. so i knew the trans was a little iffy from the start but its not that big of a deal. I did run into an issue which didn't clear itself up. In Drive it is stuck in 3rd gear. if i put it in 1st or 2nd it will switch but in drive it stays in 3rd even from a stop.
i unplugged the battery to try and reset the ecu but to no avail the light is still on. anyone have any suggestions? i'm guessing its a sensor having to do with the shift points on the transmission. i don't have a vag com.
