Hi im kevin just to clarify you have the dsg auto box ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.
this 9/10 relates to an internal fault which normally requires the mechatronics unit to be replaced.the code refers to a wiring issue on solonoid 2 but its almost always a bad mechatronics unit

Were to buy and how much do they usually cost
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.
its always best to buy from dealer because they are so unreliable and fitting second hand may result in the same issue down the line .the part have to be programmed to your vehicle using diagnostic equiptment .the part itself is very expensive normally around the $1500 mark.the issue you have is its likely that the solonoid is failing but the cNnot be brought seperatly
