    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

    Could be raft of things, does it change up and down on the paddles and manual with the stick ?

    00194 - Ignition Key Removal Lock: Implausible Signal

    Possible Causes

    • Communication Failure with Gear Selector Module
    • Selector Lever (E313) faulty
    • Tiptronic Buttons (F189) in Selector Lever (E313) faulty

    • Check Communication with Gear Selector Module

    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 ****, 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.

    Warning

    Old thread revival

    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.

    Hello guys,

    yesterday this error popped on my dash, after i used vcds i've noticed the same error code but dispite the flashing prnds my car drives very well. What can i start to investigate? It would be a silly question: but can it be something wrong with the mechatronic?
    I've also checked the 0001 measuring block from auto trans and there is a field called: Error byte from selector lever . The default value is 0 in P position but after i change the lever to any other position it pops 1 and shortly after prnds starts flashing.

    Any advise is well apreciated.

    strange enough when i've started the car today and drove for about 3 hours the error did not popped up in the dash board. anyway yesterday evening i did a login and the errors are:

    As Nigel advised i've cleaned up the switch below the lever trim. Hope this helped if not and the module is gone i've sourced one from a scrape yard here in Bucharest having the pr code: 1T1 713 025 AD. Does any of you know if it will fit? My car is a 2005 2.0 tdi BKD.
