Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
Did you check for any fault codes (using a scan tool)?
Ask Your Own VW Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
yes and the fault code was P0732-003 incorrect ratio
VW Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 3 years ago
Which engine do you have on this?
and which transmission (the 6 speed auto transmission, or the 6 speed auto transmission with dual clutch)?
Ask Your Own VW Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
2.0T FSI 6 speed auto transmission gear code 09A
VW Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 3 years ago
Hello again,
I would first check the signals of the transmission input and output rpm sensors, as any discrepencies would cause an incorrect gear ratio code.
I would also check the fluid for any burnt smell, or small shreds, indicating that you have low pressure, causing a real incorrect ratio.
If all these don't show the problem, then i would next check the wiring from the TCM to the valve body, and remove the valve body, and check the solenoids on it.
Kindly get back to me with your findings, so we proeceed accordingly.
Regards,
Billy
