Hi,
Just going over the details again:
Vehicle is a 2011 MK6 VW Golf 118 tsi with a 7 speed DQ200 DSG (Dry clutch).
Today my wife was driving up a ramp at a shopping centre and the vehicle stopped driving, would not engage forward or reverse, the spanner symbol flashes when you put the vehicle into drive.
I've only tried turning the car off and back on but does the same thing, does not engage forward or reverse, I've checked and the following fault codes are present, 02113 (P0841), 06300 (P189C), 06079 (P17BF), I know the vehicle had no transmission fault codes about a week ago.
Any thoughts on what the problem may be would be appreciated and any ideas as to what I can do toget the car mobile again would be appreciated.
Regards,
Neil

The faults you're throwing make it sound like it has no fluid in the tranny- I'm assuming you have looked underneath to make sure someone didn't hit something and "let the fluid out"?

Also, check the wiring harness connectors to see if they are seeping fluid through the pins- I have seen this happen, and it can short sensor circuits together, causing errant readings. You may be able in this case to get by, at least temporarily, by cleaning out the connector and housing with some brake parts cleaner to clean up the fluid and stop the short, until you can replace the wiring harness.
