Re: DSG?...PRNDS?(flashing)Ahhh! (link1123)

I just had this happen to me this morning as I went to go wash my car.
I had to turn off and turn on my car 3 times before it would let me shift into Drive. Now I have a CEL light on in the cluster. I am going to drive up to the dealer tomorrow and have them take a looksee at it.
FYI I have a 2009 GTI (TSI) DSG with 7k miles.
p.s. there are a handful of people having this same problem on the golfmkv forums as well. It seems some people's problem just disappears and some people end up getting a whole new DSG transmission.

usually depends on what is causing it. If you have a fault light, "usually" there is a problem with the Mech, if you don't, but the lights have flashed apparently, moving the shifter and not keeping the brake pedal depressed the whole time will cause the PRNDS to blink, though the car should drive fine in the second scenario.

I had the same exact problem and here is the resolution to my problem:
Took my car up to the dealer today and they just called me. They found out that the problem was a magnet in the triptronic shifter had come lose and was casuing the error. They went ahead and installed a new magnet properly reset the fault code, and the error didn't come back.
Sorry I don't have much more technical information to share, but this is all he told me. Hopefully this can help?

My Jetta did the same they replaced the shifter mechanism. It seemed to have worked. Got a nice new leather shifter out of it.
Month later the mechatronic unit was replaced due to surging and thumping when changing at low speeds from 1st to 2nd.
