S-tronic gearbox malfunction


Registered User
Hi guys, I am in hope that someone has had this before and it's not a major one.
It's an A7 3.0tdi quattro 180kw with s-tronic gearbox.
Yesterday after running 50miles at speeds around 100mph the " Gearbox malfunction. You can continue driving. Limited functionality " appeared on the dashboard and the gearbox went into limp mode. From time to time the gearbox entered limp mode and then it was ok again till I got home.
Left it for 3hours and then started with no prob and everything was fine for another 20miles of driving trough traffic when went into limp mode again for about 2 miles ( 10 mins) and then back to normal.

I've had a VCDS scan and the fault comes as :

Forgot to mention the car has 70k miles and I owned it since 32k and I've never changed the transmission oil or filter.
