Customer Question

Hi I'm ***** *****
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I have a 3.0 a4 b6 (2002) quattro. After an oil change it was stuck in park. Removed fuse 31 and could shift. The solenoid is fine. Have replaced the brake switch. no change. So disengaged the solenoid lever and can shift. I then noticed that the PRNDS indicator on the dash was "flickering" rapidly from the drive mode to tiptronoc mode. It is shifting OK but occasionally down shifting a gear then return to normal after a few seconds. (still flickering though. S port mode won't change out of the gear you are in when you select sport.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Audi Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
Customer: I've also changed the curciut board under the shifter. no success.
