Very strange il opt out im a vw specialist and have never seen that before

Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

I'm really going to need to to attach a picture. VW does not have a warning light for the transmission, if there is a fault stored in an automatic transmission that affects torque controls it will set a fault and light the Check Engine Light.

The only light that I can think of on a manual transmission has been the upshift indicator display. This is a system that tries to "assist" you with choosing the proper gear to be in for the torque demand currently on the engine.
