    Thread: No crank

    1. 07-19-2019 10:55 PM #1
      I'm going to dig deep into the forums and look for any leads but has anyone had this problem or heard of someone with this? I was driving home in the rain and hit a deeper spot causing water to be thrown on to the hood of the car. Everything was fine until later that night when I got home, the cooling fans wouldn't turn off. I turned the car on and off and thought I solved the problem until the next morning when the battery was dead. I eventually got it charged and started but then it wouldn't shift out of park. I was then getting a flashing PRNDS but not the typical one where the whole thing flashes, this one was just flashing N or D ( I can't remember this was over a month ago ). I shut the car down and tried restarting but then it doesn't even crank. Eventually I got it towed to the shop where they got a code of no communication to transmission control module. They thought it was the shifter so we ordered a new one and switched it out, no luck. Can anyone help me out this is frustrating!

      I havn't tried starting it manually but I'm sure it will, I feel like it's something electrical but just not experienced enough to know what it could be. Oh, all fuses were also checked

      hey there, no one has replied because they probably don't know the answer. i don't. I have looked around and have never heard of the flashing, singular letters. i'm not sure what you mean by "manually starting" the car. i didn't think we could do that with the dsg, but i've been wrong many a time before...=) do keep us posted.

      I would unplug the dsg connection, spray it with maf or electrical parts cleaner and once it’s dry, put a dab of bulb grease on it. Actually I would do this to all the connections. But it sounds to me that the water has already done it’s damage.
