VW & Audi DSG Gearbox ECU

Volkswagen Audi DSG transmission fault

VW and Audi DSG Gearbox ECU problem

(Mechatronic Control Module Fault)

 

This is a very common problem for all Volkswagen and Audi vehicles fitted with the DSG (Mechatronic) 6-speed gearbox system.

The problem will normally be intermittent with the P R N D S light flashing and the gearbox going into the neutral (N) position, being unable to select forward or reverse gears. If left to cool down then the DSG gearbox will begin to work normally again. The fault will always become more permanent with time if left untreated.

 

When dealing with this issue main dealerships often opt to purchase an expensive new unit from manufacturer which will only come with a shot 1-year warranty. Another glaring issue with this is that the defect has not been dealt with at production level meaning that new units are prone to fail in the same manner, usually after the short warranty period.

 

However our consumer friendly solution of rebuilding the original unit will engineer out the defect meaning that it will not fail again, plus we will provide an unlimited mile lifetime warranty.

 

Common Failure symptoms:

  • No forward or reverse gears
  • Dropping out of selected gear
  • PRNDS light flashing
  • No communication to the gearbox ECU

 

Common fault codes:

  • P0751 17135 – Shift solenoid 1 (N88) short to ground
  • P0756 17140 – Shift solenoid 2 (N89) short to ground
  • P0761 17145 - Shift solenoid 3 (N90) short to ground
  • P0766 17150 - Shift solenoid 4 (N91) short to ground
  • P0746 17130 – Pressure control solenoid 1 (N215) short to earth
  • P0776 17160 – Pressure control solenoid 2 (N216) short to earth
  • P0716 17100 - Transmission input speed sensor (G182) implausible signal
  • P0722 17106 - Transmission Output Speed Sensor (G195): No Signal
  • P1707 18115 – Interference in mechatronic module

Hi Gabriel, it sounds like you have the common problem with the DSG-7 mechatronics unit rather than the DSG-6. We can collect, test and rebuild your own unit, full price and shipping instructions for the DSG-7 unit can be found here: https://www.ecutesting.com/product-catalogue/volkswagen/golf/ecu-dsg-gearbox/dsg325025/
