If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.
do you have VAG COM scan tool with the 2x2 connector to scan for faults?
also if you look at the gear indicator on the dash is the display reverse illuminated?
please let me know
a scan test is needed to see what and if any faults are stored . now did you inspect the foil strip from the plug to the point where the foil goes in the trans . that deterioates and causes issues that is why the scan test is needed
