I have MKIV VR6 Jetta 2001 and this post did wonders for me because the transmission has been shifting all kinds of ways for a while now. The vr6 engine is legendary and if the sport mode works you can catch me smoking fools on the highway.
Does anyone know anything about a TCM going bad over water damage ?
Also, thanks to those guys in 2002 for starting this thread.

^ Yes it is possible to get water damage to the tcm. The sensors as well. Not very common but I have seen it. If a puddle of water is hit at a decent speed, it will force water in. Just like getting too close with a pressure washer.

Re: How to Reset Automatic Transmission (GTI_PAT)

You didn't get any results to your search, because the automatic transmission is rarely referred to on this forum. Lucky for you, I have have one, as well as a Bentley

Here's the info from that:
Ignition on (not engine)
Gas pedal down all the way for min. of 5 seconds
Ingition off

Or you can use the vag-com. Hopefully this helps?
