    my wife started the car this morning and could not move the shifter into drive , its a 2005 3.2 v6 , she asked me to have a look and when got in it, it worked ok . i nocticed the N flashed a couple of times on the shifter.

    what could be coursing this , car has done 63,000 miles and the dsg was serviced at 39,500 .

    Urm the dis flashed isnt good, I would get it logged to see if its the lock thats getting stuck as mine has before, there's a small microswitch under gearknob when in park position, could check this for any grime buildup around it.

    Oh thats a new one on me, I suspect it was a slight microswitch issue that prevented the lock from disengaging fully.
