    Audi A3 3.2 Dsg Flashing PRNDS

    I have drove to MOT garage today and everything was fine. After it faild MOT (not working rear belt - got stuck only - and split velocity gaiter - £70 fix) on the way home I got my DSG gearbox flashing. All gears PRNDS are flashing and it doesnt show what mode DSG is in.

    When moved to P it is back to normal, then to D or S is ok but after 10s it flashes again.

    I have managed to read error code 00194


    Anyone has got any ideas whats the problem? I read online that flashing DSG is mechatronic issue but car drives without any issues.

    Confused :S

    The gear unit has a little microswitch which the lever sits over when in P, this can go faulty sometimes due to dirt, dust etc, so makes car think its in P even though its in drive modes, so cluster etc gets very confused & starts to flash, best to remove the gear surround trim, stick it in S with car not started of course, so you have access to the P position area, then push the microswitch down a few hundred times to see if that helps to clear any crap, see if it clears the problem, did for me.

    Flashing gears in dis are also inherrant of a dsg module issue, but atm I dont think this is your problem & only worry when gear changes & use show problems.

    This sounds like my problem I have just started getting when moving from manual + & - to d my dis starts to flash but when in manual it drives and changes fine also the paddles work fine. The micro switch is this replaceable on its own.
