#1605 of 2367 2003 Audi a4 3.0 with transmission issues HELP!
Aug 28, 2007 (4:25 pm)
I recently bought a used 2003 Audi a4 3.0 (my first one after selling my old Toyota). It still had a few months on the warranty so I figured I was safe. I bought it, took it to the dealership and asked them to run a full check. I honestly think they did nothing to tell you the truth. A few weeks after I did this the car started "bouncing" or "jerking" when I start the car and take it from Park to Reverse. I immediatly have to rip it back into park to get the "bouncing" of the engine to stop. I took it to the dealership and once again the computer diagnostic says nothing. Now I can be driving the car on the highway and the engine in Drive will just flip back and forth into Neutral and I can lose gas power. The light across the (P,D, N) strip on the dash will jump to all being red.
Now my car has been in over 3 times, has 40K, the warranty has run out, I've paid to run diagnostics, and still nothing is coming up. Someone please HELP! What can I do? They refuse to admit anything is wrong if the "computer diagnostic" has no errors.

#1613 of 2367 2002 audi a4 cvt problems
Sep 08, 2007 (6:37 pm)
hello, I have a 2002 audi a4 1.8t cvt. The PRND display fails to show what gear its in after engine temperature is optimal. It will not show for about 15 to 20 minutes of driving and then it will blink(almost flicker) and then turn on and work showing what gear im in. When it does not display gear my shift tronic does not work. Reverse does not work. If i put the car in park it display P. but will not display any other gear if shifted. When this happens and the car is stoped i can put it in nuetrol for about 3 seconds and switch to drive or reverse and then the PRND starts to flash. When flashing reverse works and so does the shift tronic. After driving for about 15 minutes with the flashing I will stop the car and put it in park and the rpm jumps to about 1500 then down below 1000 then to about 1000rpm and the flashing stops and the car works. displays what gear, reverse works and so does the auto stick. Its so weird but it happens all the time and started originally around 50,000 miles. the car has about 52k now. I used the vag com system and got the following codes out *17090 – Transmission Range Sensor (F125): Implausible Signal*P0706 – 35-10 - - - Intermittent*18032 – MIL Request Signal Active (Check TCM for errors tool)*P1624 – 008 – Implausible Signal* I was told by mechanincs that it could be a broken TCM or multiswitch.(Dealer repairs only) Does anybody know about this problem. Please HELP!! The dealer wants $2200 for new tcm. I would hate to pay that. Thanks

You've probably found out what your problem was by now, but I had that same problem at about 45K miles and the service rep. asked me if I was using gas from places such as Costco, Arco, etc. I said, "Who, ME?" she said only use the "Top Tier gas," which is like Shell, Chevron, etc. I haven't had that problem again YET.
